INTRODUCTION 



This work has been compiled in accordance with the provisions of the 
following act of the Thirty-second General Assembly: 

CHAPTER 223. 

ROSTER OP IOWA SOLDIERS, SAILORS AND MARINES. 

H. F. 79. 

An Act J)r6vidiflg for the compilation of a roster of Iowa soldiers, sailors and 
marines in the war with Mexico and the War of the Rebellion, the Spanish- 
American and Philippine wars, including military service in the Spirit Lake 
expedition, and other service against the Indians; providing the manner of its 
publication, distribution and sale and making an appropriation therefor: 

Be it Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa: 

Section 1. That the Governor, Attorney General, Adjutant General, Curator 
of the Historical Department of Iowa, and one soldier of the Civil War whose 
selection shall be made and certified to the Governor by the Commander of the De- 
partment of Iowa, Grand Army of the Republic, who shall thereupon be commis- 
sioned by the Governor, which member so selected shall receive the same compen- 
sation as that now paid to the trustees of educational institutions for the time 
actually and necessarily employed, shall constitute a board authorized to prepare 
in form for publication a complete roster of all Iowa soldiers, sailors and marines 
of the war with Mexico, the War of the Rebellion, and the Spanish-American and 
Philippine wars, including the military service of soldiers engaged in the Spirit Lake 
Expedition and other service against the Indians, and State troops rendering active 
service during the War of the Rebellion. 

Section 2. Said compilation shall contain the main item of record of each 
officer and soldier, and of each organization, so far as the same is obtainable from 
the records in the Adjutant General's office, in the War Department in Washington, 
in the official records of the Union Armies, and from other official and -reliable 
sources. It shall include brief historical sketches of the organization, service and 
engagements of all Iowa regiments, and other Iowa organizations, with summaries of 
casualties, list of soldiers confined In Confederate prisons, and those buried m 
National Cemeteries. 

Section 3. Said compilation shall be under the direction of the Adjutant General, 
and the sum of seven thousand five hundred dollars ($7,500) or so much thereof as 
may be necessary Is hereby appropriated from any moneys, not otherwise appro-

and warrants drawn by the State Auditor to pay expenses provided for in this act. 
Section 4. This act being deemed of immediate importance shall take eftect 
and be in force from and after its publication in the Register and Leader and the 
Des Moines Capital, daily newspapjer^ published In ;t|ie City of Des Moines, Polk 
County, Iowa. ', _'■'■-, ' • ? . ; 

Approved April 10, A. D. 1907. 

In compliance with the requirement contained in section 1 of the act, 
Col. Geo. W. Cl'osley wks selected a^ the Civil War soldier member of the 
hoard, which was then (Constituted as follo'wS: Albert B. Cummins, Gov- 
ernor; H. W. Byers, Attorney General; W. H. Thrift, Adjutant General; 
Charles Aldrich, Curator of the Historical Department, and Col. Geo. 
W. Crosley. - ; 

On the 25th day of May, 1907, the board met in the office of the 
Governor, and organized by electing Governor Albert B. Cummins, chair- 
man, and Col; Geo. W. Crosley, secretary. The secretary was instructed to 
supervise the work of compilation-.— under the direction of the Adjutant 
General — and these two members were requested to formulate plans for the 
work and, when such plans were completed, to submit same for the con- 
sideration of the board. It was declared to be the earnest purpose of the 
I)oard to have the work prosecuted with energy, and, with this purpose in 
view, the preliminary work of investigation was promptly begun. 

On June 5th, the general plan of the work was submitted, and adopted 
by the board. With some modifications and changes, the plan has peen 
carried out as shown in these volumes. 

It has been a difficult task to condense the history of the different 
organizations into what could be fairly considered " a brief historical 
sketch," as prescribed in the act. . History has never dealt, and perhaps 
never will be able to deal, in the most satisfactory manner, with all those 
whose achievements go to make up history, even where there are no lim- 
itations as to time and space. In the preparation of these sketches, the 
•compiler has confined himself exclusively to the facts as shown by the 
military records, and to his own personal knowledge of the conditions that 
pertained to the common experience of the volunteer soldiers of the War of 
the Rebellion, a knowledge gained by experience as a soldier in active ser- 
vice \ from the commencement to the close of that war. He could at best 
point out only the most conspicuous figures and events as contained in the 
official reports. Only a few of the names of the gallant officers and men 
whose acts of bravery entitled them to special mention are contained in 
these reports. In the long period of service which the greater number of 
these Iowa organisations rendered, they were engaged in so many ijoa- 
portant expeditions, campaigns and battles, that but few could be described 
in detail, and none with that particularity of detail which would do them 



INTRODUCTION 



full justice. The brief paragraph opposite the name of each soldier, which 
follows the history of the organization to which he belonged, is also com- 
piled from the official records. It shows only the leading features of his 
service. It does not and can not be made to show in detail the service he 
performed, or what he endured and suffered, and, notwithstanding the 
careful research of the official records, there will no doubt be some few 
cases in which even this brief paragraph will be found, either in part or 
as a whole, incorrect. In all such cases, the injustice to the soldier is 
due to the official records, and not to carelessness or neglect on the part 
of those who prepared these revised rosters. General N. B.. Baker, who 
was the Adjutant General of Iowa during, and for a number of years after, 
the War of the Rebellion and who was a man of great ability, had the 
wisdom and foresight to require of the Iowa officers copies of their official 
reports and returns for preservation in his office, in order that the military 
record of each organization might be preserved for all time. For this 
purpose blanks were prepared and sent to the commanding officers of Iowa 
regiments in the field, upon which to make copies of all their reports and 
returns. To add emphasis to this requirement, and as an evidence of ap- 
preciation of the importance of compliance with it, the Tenth General As- 
sembly of the State of Iowa adopted the following concurrent resolution: 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, that the 
Colonels of Iowa regiments engaged in the service of their country, be respectfully 
requested to ^furnish the Adjutant General of the State, at their earliest conveni- 
ence, with a brief history of their respective regiments, showing what they have 
accomplished and endured, not only on the battlefield, ,but upon the march and in 
camp, with a view that the information thus obtained may hereafter be embodied 
into a permanent history and monument of the patriotism, the heroism, and achieve- 
ments of the soldiers of Iowa. 

Resolved, that the Adjutant' General be requested to communicate the above 
resolution to the Colonels of all Iowa regiments. 

JACOB BUTLER, 
Speaker of the House of Representatives. 
ENOCH W. EASTMAN, 

President of the Senate. 
Approved February 23, 1864. 

WILLIAM M. STONE, 

Governor. 

There seems to have been a general disposition to comply with these 
requests, but, in the exigencies of war, some of these reports and returns 
were lost in transmission, some were captured by the enemy, and, at the 
close of the war, the records of the office of the Adjutant General were 
still, in many respects, in a very incomplete and unsatisfactory condition. 
General Baker made every effort to remedy these defects by appealing 
to the officers, who had returned, to their homes, to supply the .information 
that would enable him to complete the records. The information thus 
obtained was not complete, because of the fact that it was mostly 



xxii INTRODUCTION 



given from memory. A part of these incomplete records have been cor- 
rected by information obtained from the War Department in Washing- 
ton and from surviving Iowa soldiers. It is greatly to be regretted that 
this work of revision was not undertaken at an earlier date, when a larger 
number of the surviving soldiers of the war were still living. After the 
lapse of nearly half a century, it is diflBcult for most men to remember 
with accuracy events that did not make the most lasting impression upon 
their minds. They can remember the most important events distinctly, 
but, when it comes to recalling the personal record of comrades in their 
company or regiment, it is only of those with whom their relations were 
most intimate that they can give positive information. There was now and 
then a soldier who kept a daily diary in which he recorded the principal 
events that occurred during his term of service. The compiler has per- 
sonal knowledge of only one such private record that covered a period of 
three years' continuous service in the field. Could all the records of this 
kind which have been preserved have been collected, they would no doubt 
have been of great value in compiling a work of this character. 

The errors and omissions which may occur in these revised rosters must 
therefore be accounted for by the causes before mentioned. In many in- 
stances the only record obtainable is the name, age, date of enlistment, 
residence, date of muster into the service of the United States, and the 
date of discharge or muster out of tl^e soldier. In such cases, particularly 
where the soldier served for the full term of his regiment and was mus- 
tered out with it, the inference is that his history is identical with that 
of his regiment. He may have participated in every battle in which his 
regiment was engaged, but, as only the names of those who were killed, 
wounded, captured, or missing in action,, or those who were favored by 
special mention, appear in the official reports, his name would not appear 
as a participant. The men who had the good fortune to go through their 
entire term of service without sustaining any serious injury, and who were 
also so fortunate as to have escaped being the victim of some form of sick- 
nlfess, have no record — as a rule — except that of continuous service, but 
such a record is remarkable, and certainly most commendable. 

Col. George H. Turner, who compiled the record of service of Michigan 
Volunteers in the War of the Rebellion, in his introductory refers to the 
class of soldiers above alluded to, and also to those reported as missing in 
action, in the following forceful and truthful statement: 

It scarcely occurred to the officers who made their official returns to the 
different departments that forty years after the conflict an individual history of 
each soldier who participated would be written. * * ♦ The hardships of a campaign, 
thfe duties exacted night and day, the constant attention to matters of vital importance, 
are not conducive to literary efforts of biography or general history. It is pathetic 
to know that thousands upon thousands of Union soldiers who participated in many 
of the most desperate battles of the Civil War have no records of such battles to 
their credit in the official reports. A limited number were fortunate enough to have 
their names recorded by their officers as participating in such engagements. 



INTRODUCTION xxiii 



It was sometimes impossible in the stirring times of war for commanding 
officers to give authentic and final history of men who disappeared in a great 
battle, as in many cases the bodies of the dead could not be found, and if pos- 
session of the field was yielded to the enemy, the fate of those who were made 
prisonej-s of war could only, if ^ver, be learned through unreliable Confederate sources. 

For such heroes who died for their country and who sleep in nameless graves, 
their epitaph is inscribed in this history as "missing in action." A more honorable 
or heroic epitaph could not be penned. 

It will thus be seen that the same diflficulties encountered in the com- 
pilation of this work existed elsewhere. In fact, the same condition pre- 
vailed in all the states, and it may be safely assumed that the record of 
personal service of Iowa soldiers recorded in these volumes is as nearly 
correct and complete as that published by any other state. The total en- 
rollment, together with the Summary of Casualties which follows the roster 
of each regiment, has been carefully compiled from the records, and demon- 
strates more clearly than language could describe the tremendous sacrifice 
of life, and the untold suffering endured by these brave sons of Iowa. The 
State has honored itself in thus endeavoring to do justice to their memory. 



Volumes I. and II. of this work, containing the historical sketches and 
revised rosters of the First to the Sixteenth Regiments of Infantry, inclusive, 
had been published prior to the commencement of the session of the 
Thirty-third General Assembly, which made provision for the continuation 
and completion of the compilation, by the adoption of the following Act: 

CHAPTER 248. 

ROSTER OP IOWA SOLDIERS, SAILORS AND MARINES. 

H. F. 171. 

An Act providing for the completion and distribution of the roster of Iowa soldiers, 
sailors and marines as provided by chapter two hundred twenty-three (223), 
laws of the Thirty-second General Assembly, fixing number of volumes, and 
making an additional appropriation therefor. 

Be it Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa: 

Section 1. Appropriation — how drawn. That the sum of ten thousand ($10,- 
000.00) dollars or so much thereof as may be necessary, is hereby appropriated from 
any moneys, not otherwise appropriated, in the treasury of the State, for the employ- 
ment of the extra help and other necessary expense to complete the compilation of 
the- roster and record of Iowa soldiers, sailors and marines provided by chapter two 
hundred twenty- three (223), laws of the Thirty-second General Assembly, and the 
same shall be drawn and expended as provided for in section three (3) of said 
chapter. 

Section 2. Number printed and bound — distribution. The edition of each vol- 
ume hereafter printed shall be three thousand, instead of ten thousand, as provided 
by said chapter. Two thousand of each edition shall be bound in half sheep and the 



INTRODUCTION 



remainder shall be stitched and stored for future use and so bound whenever re- 
quired for sale or distribution. One hundred sets of said rosters and record shall 
be placed in the hands of the Adjutant Greneral and one hundred sets in the State 
library, for exchange with libraries of other states, the War Department library, and 
the Librarian of .Congress and such other institutions of other states as haVe ex- 
tended or may hereafter extend courtesies of like character to this State ; one set 
shall be issued to each Camp of the Union Veteran's Legion, located in the State of 
Iowa ; the remainder of the edition shall be disposed of as provided in section three 
of the aforesaid chapter, except as said section is modified by the provisions of this act. 
Section 3. In effect. This act being deemed of immediate importance shall 
be in force from and after its publication in the Register and Leader and Des Moines 
Capital, newspapers published at Des Moines. Iowa. 

Approved March 12, A. D. 1909. 

The work of compilation had been discontinued on December 1, 1908, 
on account of exhaustion of the appropriation, and was resumed on March 
17, 1909, when the new appropriation became available. 



Seventeenth Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Infantry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 
SEVENTEENTH REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER 

INFANTRY 



The ten companies composing the Seventeenth Iowa Infantry were or- 
dered into, quarters at Keokuk, Iowa, between the dates January 25 and 
March 14, 1862, and were there mustered into the service of the United 
States by Lieutenant Charles J. Ball, United States Army, between the dates 
March 21 and April 16, 1862. The original roster of the regiment shows 
that it had an aggregate strength of 897 when the last company was mus- 
tered, and that additional enlistments of 61 men gave it an aggregate of 958, 
rank and file, before it left the state. 

On the 19th of April, 1862, the regiment left its rendezvous at Keokuk and 
was conveyed by steamer to St. Louis, Mo., arriving there on the 20th and 
going into quarters at Benton Barracks, where it was provided with arms and 
the necessary equipage for active service in the field. With but little oppor- 
tunity for drill and instruction it was hurried to the front, leaving St. Louis 
May 5th and proceeding by steamer to Hamburg Landing, Tenn., where it 
disembarked and marched to join the army then engaged in the siege of 
Corinth, Miss. The regiment participated in the siege operations until May 
30th, on which date Corinth was evacuated, and then joined in the pursuit of 
the enemy. When the pursuit was abandoned, it returned to Corinth and, 
during the remainder of the summer, was engaged in perfecting itself in drill 
and discipline, and in watching the movements of the enemy, evidently making 
preparations to recover possession of Corinth and to drive the Union army 
out of the State. 

On the 18th of September, 1862, the regiment marched in the direction of 
luka. Miss., and on the 19th became engaged in the desperate battle which was 
fought there. In this, its first battle, the regiment was subjected to an expe- 
rience never repeated in its subsequent splendid service. The oflacial report of 
the conduct of the regiment in the battle of luka was written by Captain 
John L. Young.^ He describes the position occupied at the commencement of 
the engagement; states that an order was given which one-half the regimeiit 
failed to hear and which resulted in separating the right from the left wing, just 
as the regiment came under the fire of the enemy. This was a critical situation 
for both men and officers who had never been under fire, and one which de- 
manded the most prompt, capable and energetic leadership. But one of the 
field officers (Colonel Rankin) was present for duty, and he was disabled by 
having his horse shot under him early in the engagement, plunging him against 
a tree and rendering him incapable of remaining in command of the regiment. 
Oaptain S. M. Archer then assumed command, but he soon fell, severely wounded. 
The command then devolved upon Captain Young, who was with the right wing 
and who urged the men to maintain their position under the heavy fire of the 
enemy, which they did for a time, even advancing toward the rebel line. The 



^ War of the Rebellion Official Records, Series 1, Vol. 17, p. 109. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 



following brief extracts from his official report will show that the Captain 
and the subordinate officers who were with him made a gallant effort to stem 
the tide of battle: 

. . . About the time I mention as having lost sight of Colonel Rankin our men 
retreated without any command, which caused great confusion. They had not pro- 
ceeded far to the rear, however, until I succeeded in rallying them, and got them back 
to about where our line was first formed. ... I then went to near the right of the 
right wing and urged the men forward. We had proceeded but a short distance when 
a tremendous volley from the enemy caused a panic in the battalion, and with all my 
efforts and assisted by Captain D. A Craig (who was the only Captain I saw after 
Colonel Rankin left the field) could not rally them until they had retreated almost 
to the road near the old log church. I here succeeded in stopping them, got a line 
partly formed and marched them forward. By the time I had got them to our 
former line, I had, I should think, about 300 men, consisting of the right wing of our 
regiment and stragglers from the Fifth Iowa, Eleventh Missouri, Fourth Minnesota, 
Thirty-ninth Ohio and some others. I now held them near where our fiif-st line was 
formed for about three-quarters of an hour. ... 

Captain Young then proceeds to describe in detail the movements which 
followed, to the close of the battle. He shows that, owing to the blunder of 
some one higher in command, the men under his command were subjected to 
the fire of both Union and rebel troops, which caused another panic and retreat. 
He succeeded, however, in again rallying the men and keeping them in line 
until the retreat was sounded. In closing his report Captain Young says: 

It may be that the foregoing would not add much to the reputation of a regiment, 
but this I cannot avoid. I give you a simple statement of the facts that came under 
my own observation, hoping to be able to give a better account of the Seventeenth 
Iowa in the next engagement. It is due to Captain Craig, company H; Lieutenants 
Garrett and Johnson of company A; Lieutenants Rice and Snodgrass of company I; 
Lieutenant Hull, company E ; Lieutenant Morris, company F ; Lieutenant Stapleton, 
company C, and one or two others, probably, who were with me through the entire 
engagement, to say that they acted in a very brave and unflinching manner and 
deserve great credit. I do not wish either to be understood as casting any insinuations 
upon any officer in the regiment, but I only mention those whom I saw in the 
engagement. 

Brigadier General J. C. Sullivan, who commanded the brigade to which 
the Seventeenth Iowa was attached, says in his official report: "The Seven- 
teenth Iowa Regiment was without a field officer, and Captain Archer, the 
senior Captain, soon fell, severely wounded, when Captain Young assumed 
command and did his duty nobly."^ There is nowhere a word of censure of 
the Seventeenth Iowa in the Brigade Commander's report. The unfortunate 
situation in which the regiment was placed, — without a field officer, its senior 
Captain disabled by a severe wound at the very beginning of the engagement, 
the regiment separated just as it came under the fire of the enemy, its officers 
imskilled in war and sorely in need of a full complement of field officers to 
lead and direct them, — these facts were well known to the Brigade Commander 
and led him to overlook the failure of the regiment to measure up to the 
high standard of excellence of which he well knew they would prove them- 
selves capable under more fortunate conditions. Major General Rosecrans, 
however, considered it his duty to administer a severe reprimand to the regi- 
ment." He was soon to have an opportunity to do an act of justice in commend- 
ing the bravery of the officers and men of the Seventeenth Iowa, and in that 
order it will be observed that, in again referring to the conduct of the regiment

SEVENTEENTH INFANTJlY 



at luka, he uses the fitting word "misfortune" instead of the harsh and unjust 
terms contained in his previous order. At the conclusion of Brigadier General 
Sullivan's report of the conduct of his brigade in the battle of luka, he makes 
the following statement: "I enclose reports received from commanding officers 
of regiments, together with a list of the killed, wounded and missing of my 
brigade. The regiments of my brigade engaged were: Tenth Iowa, Colonel 
Perczel; Seventeenth Iowa, Captain Archer; Eightieth Ohio, Colonel Bartilson, 
and one section of the Twelfth Wisconsin Battery, commanded by Lieutenant 
Immell."* 

The tabulated returns of casualties, by regiments, and the aggregate loss 
of the brigade, show that the Seventeenth Iowa sustained a loss greater than 
that of all the other regiments of the brigade combined.* In his history of 
the regiment, Colonel Clark R. Wever, referring to its conduct in thQ battle of 
luka, makes the following statement: "In this our first real battle, considering 
the stupidity, mismanagement and confusion which characterized the greater 
part of the engagement, the regiment conducted itself in a manner of which all 
engaged feel as truly proud as of any subsequent engagement, notwithstanding 
the opprobrium cast upon it in orders announcing the results of the battle."' 

The loss of the regiment at luka was one officer and three enlisted men 
killed, three officers and thirty-five enlisted men wounded, and four enlisted 
men missing in action, a total loss of 46, while the entire loss of the brigade 
was but 86. That the officers and men of the Seventeenth Iowa acquitted them- 
selves well in this battle — when the facts, as shown, are taken into considera- 
tion — must be conceded. 

Darkness put an end to the conflict at luka and, during the night, the 
enemy retired from the field, thus admitting defeat. The rebel general had 
not abandoned his intention to make another desperate attempt to regain pos- 
session of Corinth, notwithstanding his failure at luka. The concentration 
and movements of his army indicated his purpose to renew the struggle, and 
the Union troops were concentrated in the vicinity of Corinth, where they 
awaited the impending conflict. The Seventeenth Iowa, with the Second Brigade, 
Third Division, Army of the Mississippi, (the same command with which it 
had fought at luka,) lay in camp ^t Corinth on the morning of October 3, 1862. 
Early that morning Captain John L. Young, who was in command of the 
regiment, received an order from Brigadier General Sullivan, the brigade com- 
mander, to move his regiment towards the north to meet the enemy, reported 
to be advancing from that direction. While this order was being executed. 
Major Jabez Banbury, of the Fifth Iowa Infantry, was ordered by General 
Hamilton (commanding the Division) to take command of the regiment. 
Limitation of space will not permit the reproduction of Major Banbury's 
official report in full, but the following extracts will serve to show the splendid 
conduct of the regiment in the two days' battle of Corinth: 

♦Headquarters Sbyentebnth Iowa Infantry Volunteers, 
Camp at Hatchib Church, Miss., Oct. 9, 1862. 
General: As directed by order of General Hamilton, I took command of the 
Seventeenth Iowa on the morning of the 3d Instant, after the regiment had been 
marched about one-half mile north of Corinth by Captain Young. About 7 A. M. we 
were moved with the rest of the brigade to the breastworks two, miles north of town, 
and after changing position, company A, at about 2 o'clock, under command of First 
Lieutenant Garrett, was thrown out about three-fourths of a mile as skirmishers, and

was engaged in a brisk skirmish of about an hour, during which time it did good 
service, leaving quite a number of dead rebels on the ground. Company B was also 
deployed as skirmishers in front of our regiment, and while out the regiment changed 
position, and it did not get to the regiment until the next day, after the battle on 
Saturday was over. This company under command of Second Lieutenant Hull, of 
company E, deserves great credit for the brave and unflinching manner in which it 
held its perilous situation until relieved. About 4 :30 o'clock this regiment was placed 
on the extreme right of the brigade and ordered forward in line of, battle, and after 
marching about half a mile we were met with heavy flre from the enemy's batteries, 
which we found were not more than 100 yards in our advance. We also found the 
enemy in large force, supporting their batteries, which were three in number, and finding 
we were now some distance from the brigade and entirely unsupported, the enemy 
also having commenced a flank movement to our right, we fell back to the road and 
there joined the balance of the brigade. .... 

The Major describes in detail the further movements of the regiment on 
the firing line and in support of a battery, until the brigade was ordered inside 
the -fortifications, where the regiment was assigned to the duty of supporting 
batteries during most of the night. At an early hour on the morning of the 
4th it again advanced in line of battle with the brigade, but, after proceeding 
some distance, was ordered to return and was given a new position on the 
defensive line. After taking this position, Major Banbury describes the part 
taken by the regiment during the remainder of the battle, as follows: 

I remained in this position but a short time when I was ordered forward, just as 
the troops on our right were falling back quite fast, and with the balance of our bri- 
gade I marched the regiment forward to the brow of the hill, firing and driving the 
enemy before us. After firing and driving the enemy for probably twenty minutes, we 
were ordered to charge, which we did, taking quite a number of prisoners and capturing 
a rebel flag from the Fortieth Mississippi regiment. Corporal King, of Company G, 
was the first to, lay hands on the rebel colors and took the bearer prisoner and brought 
him to the rear of our lines. 

I cannot speak in too high terms of praise of both officers and men throughout 
the regiment. Not a man in the entire regiment evinced the slightest inclination to 
shirk or fall back, and all, without a single exception, stood up to the work nobly 
and with an apparent determination to drive the rebels back at all hazards. 

As the regiment was under your immediate observation during the entire engagement, 
I do not deem it necessary to mention any as deserving more mention, but will leave it 
for you to say whether any are entitled to more praise than that already received by 
this report. 

I am, General, your obedient servant,

The following order was issued by General Rosecrans, commending the 
conduct of the regiment in the battle of Corinth and, to some t^xLent, niitigating 
his harsh and unjust reprimand upon its conduct at luka:

The General commanding cannot forbear to give pleasure to many, besides the 
brave men immediately concerned, by announcing, in advance of the regular orders, 
that the Seventeenth Iowa Infantry, by its gallantry in the battle of Corinth, on the 4 th 
of October, charging the enemy and capturing the flag of the Fortieth Mississippi, has

•amply atoned for its misfortune at luka, and stands among the honored regiments 
of his command. Long may they wear with unceaising brightness the honors they 
have won. 

By order of Major General W. S. Rosecrans, 
C. GODDARD, First Lieut. Twelfth Infty., 

'^Ohio Vols., Actg. Asst. Adjt. Gen. 

The loss of the regiment at Corinth was 25 killed^ and wounded, but, 
until the last of the engagement, it was protected by breastworks and was able 
to inflict heavy loss upon the enemy with comparatively light loss to itself. 
Thus far it had lost 71 men in battle. 

The regiment participated in the pursuit of the retreating rebel army 
for several days, when it was ordered to return to Corinth, remaining there 
until November 2d, when it started with its brigade and division on the great 
Mississippi Central Expedition, which General Grant had organized with Vicks- 
burg as his objective point, and which penetrated far towards the southern 
border of the State, but was finally compelled to turn back on acount of the 
raid of a large force of rebel cavalry which destroyed the immense stores of 
supplies which had been accumulated at Holly Springs, Miss. The return 
march of the Union troops was marked by great suffering on account of insuf- 
ficient rations and forced marches. The Seventeenth Iowa bore its full share 
of the hardships of this expedition. 

On the 26th of December, the regiment with its brigade and division 
started from Holly Springs as a guard to 625 wagons, with which they pro- 
ceeded to Memphis, loaded the wagons with provisions and returned as far as 
Collierville, Tenn., where they were relieved by other troops who took charge 
of the wagon train and guarded it back to the famishing army in the rear. 
Until February 8th, the regiment was engaged in guarding the Memphis and 
Charleston Railroad. It then marched to Memphis and, on March 2d, em*- 
barked on steamer and proceeded to Grand Lake, La. On March 8th it again 
embarked and was conveyed to Helena, Ark. 

Its next expedition — a most difficult and arduous one, conducted on steam- 
boats — was through the tortuous windings of Yazoo Pass and on through the 
Coldwater and Tallahatchie rivers to the vicinity of Fort Pemberton. General 
Grant then changed the plan of his campaign and the regiment was ordered 
to return to Helena, where it remained until April 17th, when it again em- 
barked and was conveyed down the river to Milliken*s Bend, where it landed 
on the 26th and took up the line of march for Grand Gulf, where It crossed 
the river on gun boats and moved rapidly to the front. It arrived at Port 
Gibson just at the close of the engagement there and pursued the retreating 
rebels to Black River. 

The Vicksburg campaign was now fairly under way and battles were 
frequent. The Seventeenth Iowa had been engaged in several skirmishes but 
did not meet the enemy in force until May 12th, when it participated in the 
last of the fighting at Raymond and joined in the pursuit of the enemy. May 
14th the regiment engaged the enemy at Jackson and, during the battle, 
executed a brilliant charge with fixed bayonets. Colonel D. B. Hillis com- 
manded the regiment during this battle and wrote the official report. After 
describing the different positions his command occupied and its steadiness and 
good conduct as it advanced under the heavy fire of the enemy. Colonel Hillis 
thus describes the manner in which the enemy was dislodged from the ravine 
in his front and the capture of the fort: 



TWar of the Rebellion Official Records, Series 1, Vol. 17. page 171. 
^Adjutant General's Report, State of Iowa,1864, page 454. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 



*You then ordered me to take the ravine, which I did by a bayonet charge at a 
double quick, breaking the enemy's lines, and pressing him up and over the crest of 
the next hill. Having reached this crest I ordered the regiment to cease firing, and com- 
manded a halt. After having rested here some twenty minutes or more, I was ordered 
by ^ou to throw forward one company in front of my line as skirmishers at a double 
quick to investigate the brush and woods in advance. This duty I intrusted to Com- 
pany H, (Captain Craig) which they did skillfully, discovering no enemy, as he had 
fled in great confusion, abandoning his position, camp and fort, (containing four pieces 
of artillery,) which the captain entered, took possession of, and held until ordered into 
Jacksoii by General McPherson. The Captain, therefore, claims the honor of having 
first entered the works and taken possession of the guns. . . . 

Colonel Hillis concludes his report as follows: 

I went into- the action with three hundred and fifty (350) men, and lost during 
the engagement 16 killed, 60 wounded, 3 missing and one disabled by a shell, making an 
aggregate of 80 men, or 23 per cent of my command. ... I cannot speak in too 
high terms of praise of the gallantry and zeal displayed by the entire command. So well 
did all do their part that none are deserving of special mention, , unless it be Captain 
Li. W. Houston, who, while suffering from a very painful and severe woimd through 
his left fore-arm, and away from all assistance, seized a gun from one of three 
rebels, and brought the tliree into the hospital; and to Lieutenant Colonel Wever, 
"Captain Walden (who commanded the left wing, and had his horse shot under him,) 
and Adjutant F. Woolsey, to all of whom I am indebted for their coolness and assist- 
ance, and take pleasure in commending them. 

The regiment had again demonstrated the fact that it had no superior 
among the volunteer organizations from Iowa or any other State, and had 
established a battle record which would have entitled it to lasting fame had 
its service terminated with the battle of Jackson. It had now been in the 
service but little over a year, had been engaged in four battles, many skir- 
mishes, and arduous marches, and was in the midst of one of the greatest 
pampaigns of the war, in which the valor, fortitude and endurance of its 
officers and men was to be tested to the utmost. 

On the day following the capture of Jackson the regiment marched in 
the direction of Vicksbur^ and the enemy. The rebel army was stubbornly 
contesting against the advance of the Union army, and it was evident that 
another great battle was impending. The wounded were left at Jackson, in 
charge of Assistant Surgeon C. C. Biser, who was afterwards captured and, 
with the wounded who were able to be moved, sent to Richmond, Va. In his 
history of the regiment. Colonel Clark R. Wever describes the events which 
transpired immediately preceding the next battle in which it participated: 

"At Clinton we were detached from the corps, and ordered to remain to do 
picket and personal guard duty for General Grant, who had established his headquar- 
ters there. Tired, sore-footed and war-worn, we lay down at night congratulating 
ourselves upon our good fortune in being allowed a short respite, while the rest of 
the army were still "marching on" ; but scarcely had our reveille been sounde<Jl on the 
day following, (May 16th) when the angry booming of a hunderd cannon told but too 
plainly that there was more work to be done. General Grant ordered us to move with 
the least possible delay. We were immediately in the road, and marching in quick time 
for the theater of operations. " The dust and heat were almost insufferable, and the 
road in places literally blockaded with teams. Within three miles of Champion Hills, 
very discouraging reports were sent to the rear. Everybody concurred in the opinion 
that the rebels had a very decided advantage, and bid fair to gain the day. An aide

to General Grant rode back to us and ordered the brigade (two regiments only being 
present, the Tenth Missouri, and Seventeenth Iowa,) forward on the double quick. The 
order was immediately given by Colonel Hillis, and the boys threw away knapsacks, 
haversacks, blankets and everything (except guns and ammimition,) that could impede 
their march; pushed forward on a brisk run, and soon reached the scene of conflict. 

The regiment so greatly distinguished itself at Champion's Hill, that the 
compiler, at the risk of having to give more meager description of future 
battles in which it was engaged, gives here the entire ofllcial report of its 
conduct in that hotly contested engagement: 

Headquarters Seventeenth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, 
Before Vicksburg, Miss., May 24, 1862. 

Captain: — In compliance with Special Orders No. 27, from your headquarters, I 
herewith submit the following report of the part taken by my regiment (Seventeenth 
Iowa Volunteer Infantry) in the battle of Champion's Hill on the 16th inst. I arrived 
in the vicinity of the hills on which the battle was being fought about 2 p. m., and 
without having time to rest my men (who had that day marched 12 miles through dust, 
and under a burning sun, with knapsacks on their backs,) was ordered forward at a 
double quick. I established my line at a point midway up and on the north side of the 
hill, my right resting on the left of the Vicksburg road, in the rear of the Ninety- 
third Illinois (Colonel Putnam) which was severely pressed by the enemy's massed 
forces. In doing this my men suffered from the fire intended for the Ninety-third. As 
soon as my line was formed. Colonel Putnam moved his regiment out by the right flank, 
and left me fronting the enemy direct, some 40 or 50 yards only intervening. This posi- 
tion I held under a well directed fire, which my gallant fellows returned with interest, 
for about fifteen minutes, when I ordered an advance, which was executed with a 
heroism that I am proud of. This caused the enemy to give way, but he soon rallied, 
and again gave way, and in this way I advanced, driving him slowly. Inch by inch, 
from the ravines and ditches in which he had effected a lodgement, up one declivity and 
down another, and finally onto the summit of the ridge along which the road runs, 
and charged him down the slope on the other (south) side, retaking four pieces of* 
artillery, J. F. Waddell's Alabama battery. This battery had been taken earlier in 
the engagement by the Eleventh Regiment, Indiana Volunteers, but this splendid regi- 
ment had again to yield it, the enemy having massed his forces against it. After this 
charge, I commanded a halt and rectified my line, which had been somewhat deranged. 
All being quiet at this moment on my front, I ran back a short distance to get a 
horse (mine having been shot early in the engagement) but, being overcome by ex- 
cessive labor and heat, I fell by the way, and by the time I returned to my regiment, 
which was in a few minutes, it had made another gallant charge, under the command 
of Lieutenant Colonel Wever, routing the Thirty-first Alabama Regiment. In this 
charge a great many prisoners were taken, including the colors, color bearer and guard 
of that regiment, which colors are now in my possession. The enemy again rallied, 
but by this time the gallant Tenth Missouri was in position on my right, and we gave 
him two more charges, which put him in perfect rout. This then ended the fight, 
so far as we were concerned, and, I think, entirely. My regiment then, wearied and 
worn, with thinned ranks, rested on their arms until ordered into camp. It is worthy 
of note that in this engagement the regiment charged the enemy successfully five times, 
under the most galling fire from musketry and shell, and over ravines, and ditches 
that are very difiicult of passage, and which afforded him excellent protection. 

In conclusion, I feel that my command did their whole duty, and are worthy of 
all commendation. To my Lieutenant Colonel (Wever) and Adjutant (Woolsey) I 
am greatly indebted for their daring and assistance during the engagement. Both 
of these ofiicers had their horses shot under them early in the fight. I cannot forbear 
mentioning in this connection specially for great bravery First Lieutenant C. W. Wood- 
row, Company K. ; Second Lieutenant Greorge W. Deal, Company G. ; Second Lieutenant 
Tower, Company B., (whose gallantry resulted in the loss of his leg) ; First Sergeant 
Evan E. Sweamgin, Company F., and Private Albert G. Trussel, Company G, who 
captured the colors and color bearer of the Thirty-first Alabama. In the engagement 
I had nine companies, one company (B) having been left back at Jackson on duty. My 
loss in killed, wounded and missing is 57 (25 per cent of the number engaged), as per

Alabama* and Missouri troops.

On May 20th tlie regiment reached Vicksburg and became part of the 
besieging force. On May 226. it participated in the assault on the enemy's 
works, but, being on the reserve line, lost but seven men. The assault was 
repulsed and the regiment was thereafter engaged in the regular siege opera.- 
tions, furnishing details for the trenches and, while performing this duty, 
suffered slight losses from the enemy's sharpshooters. Later in the siege, 
however, the regiment was ordered to perform a most nazardous and dangerous 
service, which is thus described by Colonel Wever: 

"On the 26th of June, General Logan sent to our division for two regiments to 
assist in holding and defending Fort Hill, which was then mined and in readiness for 
blowing up ; the Seventeenth was one of the two designated. Early in the afternoon 
the fort was blown up, and the breach held by troops from General Logan's division, 
until 11 o'clock at night, when we were placed in the broken parapet, which we held 
until 2 o'clock A. M. of the 27th, with musketry alone, while the rebels were continually 
hurling hand grenades (6 and 10 pound shells,) into our midst. Here we lost 37 men 
killed and wounded ; the killed were so charred and mutilated that their friends could 
scarcely identify them, and the wounds were terrible, very many afterwards proving 
fatal. 

^'^The regiment had now lost in battle, on the skirmish line, and in siege 
operations, an aggregate of 268. Its losses by death from disease and by dis> 
charge for disability had also been heavy, but, undismayed, it was ready to 
go forward in the discharge of its duty, no matter how great the suffering 
and sacrifice it might still be called upon to endure. On the 4th of July, 1863, 
the long Biege came to an end, Vicksburg had been surrendered and the Seven- 
teenth Iowa entered the city and went into camp. Here it remained, doing 
garrison duty, until the 9th of September. 

Upon the date last mentioned the regiment with its brigade and division 
proceeded to Helena, Ark., and on September 29th was ordered to Memphis^ 
Tenn. There it joined the Fifteenth Army Corps, under command of General 
W. T. Sherman. On October 10th, the regiment, now a part of Sherman's 
army, moved to Glendale, Miss., and on October 17th started on the long 
march to Chattanooga, Tenn. Thirty-two days later — November 19th — the 
army reached its destination. At 2 A. M., November 24th, Sherman's army 
crossed the Tennessee river on pontoon boats and took position in readiness 
for the impending conflict. The Seventeenth Iowa, under command of Colonel 
Clark R. Wever, participated in the preliminary operations on the 24th, and 
on the 25th of November, 1863, was in that magnificent line of battle which 
swept Mission Ridge from base to crest, steadily driving the enemy and per- 
forming one of the greatest achievements of the war. In this battle the regi- 
ment fully maintained its splendid record for bravery and efficiency. Its loss 
was 12 killed, 32 wounded and 14 missing, total 58, thus increasing its aggre-

gate loss in battle to 326. At the conclusion of his official report," Colonel 
Wever makes special mention of the gallant conduct of Adjutant Woolsey, and 
First Lieutenant Geo. W. Deal. November 26th, the regiment joined in the 
pursuit of the enemy to Greyville, Ga., from which point it returned to Chatta- 
nooga, arriving there on the evening of the 29th. 

On December 2d the regiment marched to Bridgeport, Ala., where it 
rem'ained in camp until the 22d, and then marched to Huntsville, Ala., where it 
remained during the winter and spring of 1864, part of the time engaged in 
guarding large supply trains, collecting grain and provisions, and watching 
the movements of the enemy. On the 1st of April, 1864 a large majority of 
the regiment had re-enlisted as Veteran Volunteers, and It now becaine a 
veteran organization in name as well as in fact. It had at that time an aggre- 
gate strength of 352 present for duty, with 127 absent, including the sick in 
hospitals, and those on detached service, on leave of absence and furlough, 
making a total of 479 still borne upon the rolls of the regiment — just one-half 
the number with which it had left Iowa on the 19th of April, 1862--leBS than 
two years before. 

While at Huntsville, Colonel Wever was in command of the Post. He 
was subsequently detailed to take command of another brigade, and greatly 
distinguished himself by the manner in which he defended the Post at Resaca, 
Ga., holding out against superior numbers until reinforcements reached him, 
and the enemy was compelled to abandon the siege. In the meantime Lieuten- 
ant Colonel Archer was in command of the Seventeenth Iowa, which had been 
moved to Scottsville, thence to Stevenson, where its division was again con- 
centrated and was moving to join the main army at the front, when the Seven- 
teenth Iowa was again separated from its brigade and ordered to return to 
Tilton, where it arrived July 2d. Here it was assigned to the duty of guarding 
the railroad between Dalton and Resaca, a distance of fifteen miles, except at a 
point near Reseca where two companies of another regiment belonging to its 
brigade (the Tenth Missouri) were stationed. The regiment here had a most 
diflacult and dangerous service to perform during the remainder of the summer. 
This duty was faithfully executed, and trains bearing supplies for the main 
army continued to pass over the road until the 13th of October, 1864, on which 
date the little garrison at Tilton found itself surrounded by a largely superior 
force of the enemy and, after a most gallant and heroic defense, was com- 
pelled to surrender. Captain William Horner of Company G (subsequently 
commissioned Major and Lieutenant Cblonel) was on picket duty at the time 
the enemy appeared, and, being cut off from his beleaguered comrades, escaped 
with the thirty-one men under his command to the forest-covered mountains. 
These mefa, with those who subsequently escaped from their captors, constitute 
the number enrolled upon the worn and faded but distinctly legible old war 
paper which lies before the compilier of this historical sketch. It is entitled: 
"Return of the Seventeenth Regiment of Iowa Veteran Volunteer Infantry, 
Army of the United States, for the month of October, 1864." This old return 
is regularly made out, in compliance with military regulations. It is dated 
at Reseca, Georgia, October 31, 1864, and signed "William Horner, Capt, com- 
manding the Regiment" and "E. B. S'wearngin, First Lieutenant and Acting 
Adjutant." It shows three commissioned officers and forty-one enlisted men 
present for duty. In the proper places upon the return the following notations 
are made: 

"During the first part of the montn of October, 1864, the regiment was 
encamped at Tilton, Ga., on the A. and W. R. Railroad. At that point nothing 
of interest occurred until the 13th inst., when a corps of Rebel infantry, com- 



i^Adjutant General of Iowa, 1864 Report, page 451. 



12 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



manded by Lieutenant General Stewart, made their appearance around the 
command. The defense consisted of a Block House capable of holding 70 men; 
the remainder of the men, numbering 210, were placed outside in the trenches. 
An insolent demand for surrender, accompanied by a threat to massacre the 
entire garrison, if not acceded to, was made by the Rebel General, to which 
Colonel. Archer made the brief and pointed reply: *If you want me and nay 
.m«exi come and take us.' Eleven guns were placed in position by the enemy 
(12 and ^2 pounders) and opened on the Block House. After holding the place 
seven hours, and with the Block House ready to fall and crush the whole 
force, it was surrendered to the enemy, and everything destroyed by them. 
Lieutenant Colonel Archer and Adjutant Woolsey were paroled. Several offi- 
cers and men have since escaped. The regiment became veteran seven months 
,ago and h^ve just received the order to go home. Forty-four men are left to 
accept of the furlough." 

"The regimental and company records having been captured and des- 
^|]^pyed by the enemy at Tilton, Ga., on the 13th of October, 1864, it is there- 
fore impossible to give the names of absentees. Three hundreds and one en- 
listed men missing in action." 

The names of the officers missing in action (13 in number) are given on 
the return. Opposite the names of two of the officers notations are made, as 
follows: 

f Captured at Tilton, Ga., Oct. 13, 1864, escaped be- 

"E. E. Swearngin j low Rome, Ga., and got through safe to our 
[ lines." 

Captured Oct. 13, 1864, by the enemy, escaped Oct. 
19, 1864. Drowned Oct. 21, 1864, near Rome, Ga., in 
attempting to get to our lines in company with 
Lieutenant Swearngin." 

Pathos and tragedy are combined in these brief notations. The closing 
scene in that imequal conflict shows that the Block House had been reduced 
tp such a state of ruin that it was about to fall upon and crush its gallant 
defenders. With ammunition exhausted, and with the sword and bayonet the 
only nieans of defense against the overwhelming numbers of the enemy, there 
was Hit -altemative but death or surrender. The brave and intrepid Colonel 
Archer was therefore fully justified in surrendering himself and his command, 
with the stipulation that they were to be treated as prisoners of war. 

At the time of re-enlistment, the men had been assured that they would 
be sent to their homes and given ^ furlough of thirty days, to date from the 
time of their reaching the State of Iowa. They had eagerly and hopefully 
expected the fulfillment of that promise, but the exigencies of the campaign 
which ensued became so great that every soldier in General Sherman's army, 
who was able for duty, was needed at the front. The great majority of the'se 
faithful men of the Seventeenth Iowa were thus compelled to relinquish the hope 
of again seeing their homes and loved ones until the end of the war. It was 
only to the little band who had escaped capture or death that the promise was 
fulfilled. Of those who were carried into captivity, many died from wounds 
received before their capture, and from disease. The remnant of this gallant 
regiment, under Colonel Wever, subsequently joined Sherman's army at Sa- 
vannah, marched thence to Washington and took part in the Grand Review. 
Finally, with the exchanged or released prisoners, these veteran survivors of 
the Seventeenth Iowa were conveyed to Louisville, Kentucky, where, on the 25th 
day of July, 1865, they were mustered out of the service of the United States. 
They then proceeded to Davenport, Iowa, where the regiment was disbanded 
and the men returned to their homes.

SEVENTEENTH INFANTRY 13 

Among all the splendid regiments which the State of Iowa sent into the 
field, not one has a more honorable record of service than the Seventeenth. To 
those of its members who still survive, to their families and to all who shall 
come after them, this brief history is dedicated, with the hope and belief that; 
in connection with the revised roster of the regiment which follows, it will 
serve the purpose intended by the General Assembly of the State, in enacting 
the law providing for the preservation of the history of its military organiza- 
tions, and the personal record of its soldiers.

Eighteenth Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Infantry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 

EIGHTEENTH REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER 
INFANTRY 



The Eighteenth Regiment Iowa Volunteer Infantry was organized under 
authority of Special Orders from the War Department, dated May 21-23, 1862. 
The ten companies composing the regiment were ordered into quarters by 
Governor Kirkwood on dates ranging from June 10 to July 21, 1862. The desig- 
nated rendezvous was Clinton, Iowa, and the camp was named "Kirkwood," in 
honor of the Governor. The companies were there mustered into the service 
of the United Statea by Captain H. B. Hendershott, United States Army, on 
August 5, 6 and 7, 1862. The aggregate strength of the regiment (Field, Staff 
and Line officers and enlisted men) when the muster was completed was 877.* 
Its first equipment with arms was Austrian Rifles (calibre 58) with appendages. 
It was provided with the other necessary equipment for active service, and on 
August 11, 1862, received orders to proceed to Sedalia, Mo., at which place it 
arrived August 28th, aiid was ordered to proceed to Springfield, Mo., where it 
arrived September 13th, and joined the Army of the Frontier under General 
Schofield. The regiment was assigned to the First Brigade of the Second Divi- 
sion, commanded respectively by Colonel Husted of the Seventh Missouri Cav- 
alry and Brigadier General Totten. 

On September 29th the army advanced in the direction of the enemy's 
camp at Newtonia, at which place the troops which led the advance became 
engaged with the enemy. The brigade and division to which the Eighteenth 
Iowa belonged were marched quickly in the direction of the troops engaged but, 
before their arrival, the rebel forces had retreated. During the forced march 
in the night preceding the engagement, the Eighteenth Iowa had come in con- 
tact with an advanced post of the enemy and in the skirmish which ensued lost 
one man killed and three wounded. The pursuit of the retreating rebel army 
was continued as far as Fayetteville, Ark., where the Eighteenth Iowa, being 
in advance, skirmished with the rear guard of the rebel army, but sustained 
no casualties. The enemy having been driven out of the State of Missouri, and 
the object of the expedition having been accomplished. General Schofield was 
ordered to return and make such disposition of his forces as would best protect 
the State against further invasion. The Eighteenth Iowa was ordered to 
Springfield, Mo., where a large quantity of supplies for the army had been 
accumulated. The regiment arrived at Springfield, November 14, 1862. While 
its loss in conflict with the enemy, up to this time, had been light, the men 
had suffered greatly from exposure and from the hardships to which they had 
been su1t)jected on the long march in pursuit of the enemy, and the return to 
Springfield. They were passing through the qommon experience of all soldiers, 
in their first year of service. Many were stricken with disease, the prevailing 
malady being measles, which spread through the regiment and claimed many 
victims. The entire casualties now numbered ninety, and yet the regiment had 
been in active service less than three months.

At Springfield, the Eighteenth Iowa constituted an important part of the 
garrison which numbered about 1,500 troops of all arms, and several pieces 
of field artillery. The defenses consisted of earthworks and detached forts, but 
the number of troops in garrison^ were insufllcient to man the works at all 
points. Brigadier General Brown was in command of these troops, with Colonel 
Crabb of the Nineteenth Iowa in command of the Post. Lieutenant Colonel 
Cook was in command of the Eighteenth Iowa, five companies of the regiment 
being on out-post duty some distance from Springfield. The rebel General 
Marmaduke had, by a skillful and daring movement, eluded the vigilance of the 
Union Army, and by a series of rapid marches reached the vicinity of Spring- 
field on the evening of January 7, 1863. On the forenoon of that day the 
scouts of General Brown had discovered the approaching force of the enemy, 
and the garrison therefore had warning of the impending attack and made 
every* possible preparation to meet it. The Union men of the town armed them- 
selves, offered their services for the defense, and afterwards fought bravely 
with the troops. Even the sick in hospital, who were able to leave their beds, 
took their guns and went to the front On the morning of January 8th, the 
cavalry pickets of General Brown discovered the enemy's skirmish line and the 
preliminary^ fighting began some three miles from the entrenchments. In his his- 
tory of the regiment. Colonel Hugh Campbell gives the following brief account 
of the engagement which ensued: 

January 8, 1863, the rebel forces, thirty-five hundred strong, under Marma- 
duke, attacked Springfield, then held by the Eighteenth Iowa, and a few hundred 
militia. The regiment was under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Cook. 
After a severe engagement, lasting the whole of the day, the enemy retreated, 
leaving one hundred and eighty killed and wounded. The Eighteenth Iowa suf- 
fered severely in the action, losing fifty enlisted men killed and wounded, and 
two commissioned officers killed — Captain William R. Blue, Company C, and 
Captain Joseph Van Metre, Company H, who died of wounds received in the 
action^and two commissioned officers wounded. Captain Landis, Company D, and 
Lieutenant Conaway, Company C. The regiment behaved nobly, standing their 
ground against three times their number, and by their coolness and determination 
saving the town and its valuable stores on which the army of the Frontier, thence 
drawing its supplies, depended for its existence. ... The regiment received 
a well merited compliment from Brigadier General Brown, commanding, for their 
bravery and gallantry in this action.* 

•The official report of the part taken by the Eighteenth Iowa in the gallant 
defense of Springfield not; being obtainable, the compiler has availed himself 
of the account given by Major Byers, in his "Iowa in War Times," and that of 
L. D. IngersoU, in his "Iowa and the (Rebellion," to supplement the statement of 
Colonel CampbeU. The following is a part of the concluding portion of Major 
Byers* account: 

By two o'clock, the rebels massed their forces several lines deep and made 
a determined efCort on the Union right and center. It was th^n that Captain 
Landis, of the Eighteenth Iowa, with a piece of artillery, was pushed forward 
into an exiH)sed and dangerous pQBition at the right. Three companies of the 
Eighteenth Iowa, under Captains Van Metre, Blue and Stonaker, were sent along 
as supports. By a bold dash, with overwhelming numbers, the r-ebels succeeded 
in capturing the gun, but not till Captains Blue, Van Metre and Landis were 
wounded — the two former mortally. At their sides fell many of their brave com- 
rades. At the same moment the rebels got possession of a strong stockaded

8The compiler has made diligent search of the archives for the official report 
of Lieutenant Colonel Cook, but has failed to discover it, or any official report 
of the subsequent engagements in which the Eighteenth Iowa participated. He 
has, therefore, been compelled to rely upon the history above referred to, and such 
other inforihation (deemed reliable) as he has been able to obtain. 



EIGHTEENTH INFANTRY 119 

buildinsr south of and near to the town, and from this vantage point poured a 
heavy fire into the Union line. In another hour Brown's forces were beingr heavily 
pressed, and the position seemed extremely critical. Then the "Quinine Brigade/'* 
led by Colonel Crabb, rushed to the front They were real soldiers, if they were 
sick ones. In an hour's fighting they drove the enemy back on their left center, 
but an immediate and very nearly successful assault by the rebels followed at the 
right. Some of the militia were giving way. General Brown hurried to their 
front to re-form them, but was shot from his horse in the endeavor. It was now . 
foiir o'clock, and Colonel Crabb assumed the command. Again the battle was 
resumed at the center, and for another hour continued with varying results. 
Once more some of the militia faltered and for a time all seemed lost, when others, 
also militia, charged for the lost ground with a cheer. At the same time Lieuten- 
ant Colonel Cook, with the remaining companies of the Eighteenth Iowa who had 
hurried from outpost duty to the scene, came up, apd they, too, charged the rebel 
center with a shout and drove it rearwards. Darkness soon ended the contest, 
and that night the defeated rebel army withdrew. . . . This handful of brave 
men and the sturdy, heroic militia of Missouri had saved Springfield with its 
enormous stores, and.it had saved a disaster to the Union Army. . . . 

Ingersoll, who wrote a lengthy account of the engagement, giving the 
details with great particularity, confirms the statements of Major Byers here- 
tofore quoted. Near the close of his account he says: 

Meantime five companies of the Eighteenth Iowa, which had just reached the 
scene of action from an outpost at some distance from Springfield, came up in fine 
style, under Lieutenant Colonel Cook, and went into the fight on the center with 
such effect as to drive the rebels back into the stockade, and encourage the men 
who had been fighting for hours most wonderfully. Darkness was now coming on 
and the firing gradually ceased. . . . The enemy retired under cover of the 
night from his position south of town, and had taken position more than a mile 
to the eastward. Hither Colonel Crabb sent a cavalry force to engage them and 
retard their advance, but they declined battle, and soon retired in haste. They had 
lost in the battle more than two hundred in killed and wounded. Our loss was 
about the same. There were but five companies — A, C, F, G and H — of the 
Eighteenth Iowa taking part in the contest until near its close, when the other five 
came up and turned the tide of battle in our favor, as has been related. The num- 
ber of the regiment engaged was less than five hundred, of whom fifty-six were 
killed or wounded. 

The regiment remained in Springfield during the remainder of the winter 
of 1863, performing the monotonous duties Incident to the camp and garrison 
life of soldiers. While the holding of Springfield was very necessary and 
meant so much to the loyal citizens of Missouri, it could not be otherwise than 
unsatisfactory to the gallant officers and men of the Eighteenth Iowa to be 
retained upon such duty, while so many Iowa regiments were actively partici- 
pating in the great campaigns then in progress in other parts of the South, 
and winning honor and distinction for themselves and their State. In April, 
1863, Colonel Edwards, who had been on detached service at St. Louis, returned 
to Springfield and assumed command of the Post. The operations of the regi- 
ment now assumed a much more active character. The rebel General Shelby 
had invaded Missouri with a considerable force, and, besides holding the Post 
at Springfield, portions of the Eighteenth Iowa were called upon for active 
service in the field. The subsequent service of the regiment is described by 
Colonel Campbell, as follows: 

During the spring and summer of 1863, different portions of the regiment, 
under command of Major Campbell, made three long marches of one hundred and 
ten miles each, two of them forced marches, besides doing very heavy fatigue and 



^Convalescents from Hospital. 



120 ROSTER IOWA VOLUNTEERS 

guard duty^ in which they were taxed to their utmost strength, by reason of the 
smallness of the garrison and the constant proximity of the enemy. In th^ latter 
of these marches, they participated in the campaign against Shelby, who invaded 
Missouri and penetrated nearly to the Missjauri riv^r.: The regiment was ordered 
to Cassville, Mo., under command of Lieutenant Colonel Campbell,** to cooperate 
in heading ofC Shelby's retreat. October 9th, Springfield being considered in 
danger, a part of the regiment was ordered back by forced marches, and marched 
the distance of fifty-five miles in twenty-seven hours, including halts. 

October 16th, Companies D and F, under command of Captain Hay, marched 
from Cassville to Fayetteville, as escort to a supply train, and at Cross Timbers 
encountered the enemy under Colonel Brooks, who attacked the train with five 
hundred men. After a. short but severe contest, the enemy retired with a loss of 
ten men killed and wounded. October 17th, the remainder of the regiment, under 
command of Colonel Edwards, moved, along with all the forces of the district of 
southwestern Missouri, under General McNeil, in pursuit of Shelby, who was the;i 
retreating frora Missouri, and reached Fort Smith, Arkansas — after an animated 
pursuit, during which they marched night and day, fording deep streams, and 
crossing the Boston Mountains — October 31, 1863. 

January 2, 1864, a portion of the regiment, under command of Lieutenant 
Colonel Campbell, marched to Roseville, Arkansas, to prevent an anticipated attack 
upon a supply train on the way from Little Rock, in charge of Captain Clover, 
Company K, Eighteenth Iowa, with a detachment of the regiment, and returned 
to Fort Smith, January 8, 1864, having marched seventy-five miles in the depth 
of winter, the snow being six iifches deep, without tents or shelter of any kind. 
During the rest of the wintfer, the regiment was engaged in excessive labor, in 
fatigue, escort, and guard duty, men and officers going on duty for months every 
other day, and living upon half rations. March 22, 1864, the regiment, under 
command of Captain Duncan, Colonel Edwards commanding the First Brigade, 
and Lieutenant Colonel Campbell being detained at Little Rock by a severe hurt, 
which disabled him entirely from walking or riding, moved with the Third Division 
to join General Steele, who with the Seventh Army Corps was moving on Camden, 
Ark., to cooperate with General Banks. April 12th, the regiment participated In 
the battle of Prairie d' Anne. April 13th, the Third Division, being the rear 
guard of the army, was attacked by the enemy in force at Moscow. In this engage- 
ment the Eighteenth Iowa, with the Second Indiana Battery, held the enemy in 
check until the rest of the division came up and forced the enemy to retire. 
Captain J. K. Morey, Company F, then acting Assistant Adjutant General of the 
First Brigade, was highly complimented by Colonel Edwards, commanding the 
brigade, for bravery in this action. 

April 18th, the regiment, under command of Captain Duncan, moved from 
Camden to reinforce Colonel Williams, Second Kansas (colored), who was 
escorting a large forage train. About fourteen miles from Camden, at Poison 
Springs, Colonel Williams was attacked by the enemy six thousand strong, under 
Generals Marcy and Fagan. He had with him the Eighteenth Iowa, the First 
Kansas Colored, one section of the Second Indiana Battery and about two hundred 
cavalry. His small force was completely surrounded and separated, and after a 
fierce and sanguinary conflict, in which the rest of the command was entirely 
routed and scattered with great loss, the Eighteenth Iowa was completely isolated 
and hemmed in on all sides. It retired slowly rod by rod, reforming and charging 
the enemy seven times, and finally cut its way through the enemy's lines and 
returned to Camden. I'he casualties in this engagement were eighty enlisted men 
killed, wounded and missing and one commissioned officer wounded.« The regi- 
ment received great credit for the deliberate and determined courage with which 
It held together in the face of such desperate odds and forced its way( out. The 
officers and men behaved gallantly. Captain Thomas Blanchard, when wounded, 
and under a heavy fire, seized the colors and held them, by ordering the men to 
form upon him.

EIGHTEENTH INFANTRY 121 

April 30th, the regiment participated in the battle of Jenkln's Ferry, at Saline 
river, where the enemy attacked General Steele's army, then retreating from 
Camden, and endeavored to prevent his crossing, but was repulsed after a day's 
hard fighting, with heavy loss on both sides. The regiment returned to Fort Smith 
May 15, 1864, having marched seven hundred and thirty miles, through swamps 
and over mountains, subsisting part of the time on raw corn, wading whole days 
and nights in mud and water, and suffering hardships that have been surpassed 
in no campaign of the war. 

The subsequent months of the summer and fall of 1864, and the winter of 
1864-5, were occupied with a series of long and rapid marches, the intervals of 
which were employed in severe labor on the fortifications around Fort Smith, and 
extremely heavy guard duty. Different bodies of the enemy, under Shelby, Gano, 
Cooper, Fagan and Brooks, emboldened by their successes against General Steele, 
hovered closely around Fort Smith, cut off our communications, captured supply 
trains, and completely held the surrounding country. During the whole time the 
troops at Fort Smith were kept upon two-thirds, and, during the greatest part of 
the time, half rations, and the subsistence that was furnished consisted, for a long 
time, mostly of damaged bread and meat. 

May 25, 1864, the regiment, under command of Major Morey, together with 
the Second Kansas (colored) and a section of the Second Kansas Battery, all 
under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, moved to Clarksville, Ark., to 
hold that place and keep open the navigation of the river, upon which the army 
at Fort Smith depended for supplies. The regiment lost on the march two men 
killed by guerrillas. While here. Sergeant Vance, Company C, Eighteenth Iowa, 
with twenty-eight men, in charge of a forage train, was attacked, ten miles from 
Clarksville, by forty rebels, but repulsed them and saved his train, killing tw'o and 
wounding two of the enemy, and losing one man wounded. 

August 6th, Clarksville was evacuated by order of Brigadier General Thayer, 
and the Eighteenth Iowa under command of Major Morey, together with a bat- 
talion of the Fourteenth Kansas Cavalry, and a large train of government stores 
and refugees, all under command of Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, marched for 
Fort Smith. On their march they were followed closely by the enemy, who 
harassed them slightly, but without doing serious injury. 

From August 11th to December the regiment was sent, under command of 
Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, upon four successive expeditions. In November, a 
large supply train of four hundred wagons, enroute for Fort Smith, was lying 
at Neosho crossing, Cherokee Nation, deterred from advancing by the threatened 
intervention of Gano's forces between them and Fort Smith. The supplies at 
Fort Smith were exhausted', and the possibility of holding it all depended upon the 
safe arrival of this train. November 22d the Eighteenth regiment, under com- 
mand of Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, marched to Fort Gibson to meet the train. 
On arriving there, he was ordered to proceed by forced marches towards Neosho 
crossing, one hundred miles distant, with the Eighteenth under command of 
Captain Blanchard, and the First Indiana Infantry, till he met the train. His 
command drew for rations a peck of corn in the ear per man, and a little coffee, 
and upon this supply, with no salt and a little fresh beef, killed on the way, the 
command marched day and night till it reached the train at Neosho crossing. The 
suffering from exhaustion on this march exceeded that experienced in any of the 
campaigns of the regiment. At Neosho crossing, the command met the train, 
escorted by the Second Kansas (coloi-ed), the Second and Third Indiana, portions 
of the Sixth and Fourteenth Kansas Cavalry, and two sections of artillery, under 
command of Major Phillips, who was waiting for reinforcements. The whole, 
under command of Lieutenant Colonel Campbell, immediately marched for Fort 
Gibson, and thence to Fort Smith, which he reached December 11th, having 
marched three hundred and twenty miles in the winter, forded two rivers and 
numberless sW-ollen streams, making night marches, the only subsistence for his 
wholQ command, for a part of the time, being raw corn, and beef seasoned with 
gunpowder in lieu of salt.^

122 ROSTER IOWA VOLUNTEERS 

About the last of February, 1865, four companies of the regiment, under 
command of Major Morey, were detached for garrison duty at Van Buren, 
Ark., and remained there until July 6th, when the regiment was concentrated 
at Little Rock, Ark. There, on July 20, 1865, the regiment was mustered out 
of the service of the United States, and was soon afterwards conveyed to Daven- 
port, Iowa, where it was formally disbanded, the oflBcers and men receiving their 
discharges and final payment August 5 to 7, 1865, just three years from the 
date of their muster into the service at Clinton, Iowa. 

Colonel Campbell states that only about 400 of the original members of 
the regiment were with it upon its return to Davenport, and that but eight of 
its original officers remained with it at that time; he also states that during 
its term of service it had received 235 recruits, of which 86 were from Iowa, 72 
from Missouri and 77 from Arkansas and Texas. The larger number of its 
officers had received well deserved promotions from the ranks, as vacancies 
occurred from death, resignation, discharge for disability^ or other causes. 
Quite a number of its officers had been discharged to accept promotion in 
other regiments. All these changes will be found noted in the subjoined roster, 
together with, the record of each officer and enlisted man, in paragraph form, 
opposite his name. Every , effort has been made to secure accuracy in this 
revised roster, but no doubt errors and omissions have occurred, owing to the 
imperfect manner in which part of the records have been kept, and this imper- 
fect condition is largely, if not wholly, due to the failure of officers to make 
full reports and returns to the Adjutant General of Iowa during the progress 
of the war. In some instances names will probably be found not properly 
spelled, but this could not be avoided, for the reason that the records were the 
only guide to follow. In the case of the Eighteenth Iowa, the compiler has 
found no official reports of battles on file, and has been compelled to rely upon 
such general information as he could obtain from the sources previously indi- 
cated — mainly the history of the regiment, from which liberal quotations have 
been made. 

The Eighteenth Iowa Infantry has a record of service that reflects high 
honor upon its officers and enlisted men and upon the State which sent it into 
the field. While it was not engaged in any of the great battles of the war, its 
service was no less important to the cause of the Union than was that of the 
regiments from Iowa which served in the great campaigns in Mississippi; 
Georgia and Virginia. Its service was upon the southwestern frontier, against 
an active and ever vigilant enemy; the posts which it held and successfully 
defended were most important ones, its conflicts with the enemy and its losses 
showing plainly with what determined bravery and unflinching fortitude it 
performed its duty. Its record of long and toilsome marches, of suffering from 
cold and hunger and from all the vicissitudes of war, entitles it to a place in 
history second to none of the gallant regiments which went forth from the 
State of Iowa at the call of the Government to assist in conquering a gigantic 
rebellion. 

To the memory of the brave men of this noble regiment who gave up their 
lives on the field of battle, or who died from wounds or disease; to those who 
lived to return to their homes and loved ones, but have since answered the last 
roll call; to those who still survive, the fading remnant of this once powerful 
military organization; to the dead and the living, to their wives, families and 
kindred, and to all who shall come after them and inherit the proud legacy 
transmitted by these heroic soldiers, who endured and suffered and died that 
their country might live, this brief history is consecrated.

Nineteenth Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Infantry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 

NINETEENTH REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER 

INFANTRY 



The State of Iowa had sent into the field eighteen full regiments of in- 
fantry at the time President Lincoln issued his proclamation calling for 800,000 
more volunteers, early in July, 1862. In prompt response to that call, and as 
the first contribution from Iowa under it, the Nineteenth Regiment was organs 
ized. The ten companies selected to compose the regiment were ordered into 
quarters by Governor Kirkwood between the dates Aug. 1 and Aug. 19, 1862, 
and were assembled at the designated rendezvous, Keokuk, Iowa, and there 
mustered into the service of the United States by Lieutenant Charles J. Ball, 
United States Army, on the 17th, 18th, 20th, 21st and 23d days of August, 18612. 
The aggregate strength of the regiment at muster In was 983.^ 

The name "Lincoln" was chosen for its first camp, in honor of the Presi- 
dent. In that camp, in the short interval that elapsed before the regiment took 
the field, the ofiicers and men eagerly applied themselves to the study of their 
duties as soldiers, and learned something of the rudiments of the art of 
war, in which they were afterwards to become proficient, learning their hard 
lessons by actual experience in the severe training they received in active 
campaigns against the enemy. 

The regiment was fully equipped for service in the field before leaving 
the State. On the evening of Sept. 3, 1862, Colonel Crabb received orders to 
embark his regiment and proceed to St. Louis, Mo., and, upon his arrival there, 
to report to the commanding oflicer at Benton Barracks. When the regiment 
reached the latter place it was at once assigned to quarters and was placed 
in the Brigade commanded by Brigadier General F. J. Herron, of Iowa. Oh 
the morning of September 11th, the regiment left Benton Barracks and pro^ 
ceeded by rail to RoUa, Mo. Upon its arrival at Rolla the regiment marched 
five miles from that place on the road leading to Springfield, and established 
its first camp in the State of Missouri. An active and aggressive campaign 
against the enemy was then about to begin, in which the men of the Nineteenth 
Iowa were to have their fortitude, courage and endurance put to the severest 
test. September^ 16th, the regiment took up the line of march toward Spring- 
field, where it arrived after a toilsome march of 125 miles. There it remained 
until October 11th, engaged in constructing fortifications and guarding rebel 
prisoners. It then marched to Cassville, Mo., where the Army of the Frontier 
was organized and the Nineteenth Iowa was assigned to the division com- 
manded by Brigadier General Herron of Iowa. The details of the opera- 
tions of the regiment, in this and subsequent campaigns, can not be fully 
given in this sketch, on account of limitation of space to which the com-

piler is subjected, but he hopes to include all the main features of its 
service.^ 

October 17th, the regiment again marched southward and, from that date 
until December 7th, performed a wonderful series of marches and counter- 
marches, in pursuit of a vigilant and elusive enemy. Major Bruce thus tersely 
describes those remarkable marches, which led up to and culminated in the 
battle of Prairie Grove: 

October 17th, broke camp at Cassville, Mo. ; inarched southward four miles and 
camped for the night. October ISth rparched southeward SI miles and camped on 
Sugar Creek, Benton County, Arkansas ; lay on our arms all night. General Blunt's 
division was camped near by. At 5 o'clock p. m. of the 20th broke up camp ; made 
a night march over the Pea Ridge battle ground, and on to White River ; crossed 
the river; water three feet deep, clear and cold. Oh the 2 2d marched 15 miles; 
halted and prepared supper. We were then within a distance of six miles from Hunts- 
ville. Ark. ; fell in again at 6 p. m., and made a night march of 14. miles to White 
River at a point below where we had first crossed, arriving at 2 a. m. on the morning 
of the 23d of October; bivouacked until 7 a. m. when, without waiting for breakfast, 
crossed White River, marched forward, much of the time on double quick, reaching 
the telegraph road at Bloomington at 12 m. ; formed at once in line of battle, expecting 
an attack ; remained in that position three hours and were then ordered forward on the 
jnain road to Cross Hollow, Ark., where we arrived at 5 p. m., and went into camp, 
having made a forced march of 100 miles in three days and three nights over a very 
rough and mountainous country, and having compelled the enemy to retreat across the 
Boston Mountains. Left Cross Hollow November 4, 1862, marched 15 miles and camped 
on Pea Ridge battle ground; November 5th, marched 20 miles and camped three miles 
south of Cassville. November 6th marched 32 miles and camped on Cane Creek. 
November 10th left camp on Cane Creek and marched 17 miles to Wilson's Creek. 
From there marched 12 miles and camped at Ozark, Mo. On the 14th Nov., marched 
14 miles and camped on Sawyer's Creek. November 17th, again marched towards 
Ozark; reaching that place at 9 p. m. we marched four miles farther and bivouacked for 
the night. November 18th, marched 15 miles and camped on James River. It rained 
continually on this march and the roads were in a very bad condition. November 2 2d 
left camp on James River, marched 5 miles to Twin Springs and went into camp there. 
This camp was afterwards called Camp Curtis, and is 12 miles south of Springfield, Mo. 
On the 3d of December, at 2 p. m., broke up camp and started to reinforce the First 
Division under General Blunt, who was holding the enemy in check at Cane Hill, Ark. ; 
marched 18 miles to Cane Creek and bivouacked for the night. On the 4th of December, 
marched 28 miles to Cassville and bivouacked for the night. December 5th, marched 
24 miles to Pea Ridge, Ark. December 6th, marched 34 miles to Fayetteville, and 
rested a few hours. Left Fayetteville at 5 a. m. Dcember 7th, marched 12 miles to 
Illinois Creek. Here we met the enemy, under General Hindman, and fought the battle 
of Prairie Grove.' 

At the commencement of the battle, Lieutenant Colonel Samuel McFarland 
was in command of the regiment, and was killed early in the engagement. The 
command then devolved upon Major D. Kent, who continued in command until 
the close of the battle, and from whose official report the following extracts 
are made: 

. . . The Nineteenth Regiment was ordered into line of battle at 12 o'clock m., 
Lieutenant Colonel Samuel McFarland commanding. By order of Colonel Orme, three 
companies were detached and deployed as skirmishers. The companies were A, B, 



2The compiler of this sketch has gleaned much of his material from the care- 
fully prepared histories of the operations of the regiment, found in the reports of the 
Adjutant General of Iowa, for the years 1864, 1866 and 1867, pages 461 to 466, 284 to 
286 and 589 to 592, written by John Bruce, Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel, 
Nineteenth Iowa Infantry, and Brevet Colonel and Brigadier General. The student of 
the military history of Iowa is referred to these histories for a more extended account 
of the operations of this regiment.

and C, and owing: to circumstances. Lieutenant Root, the acting Adjutant of the 
regiment, was ordered to take command. The skirmishers advanced under a heavy 
fire to a cornfield on the right of Company E, First Missouri Light Artillery, and 
were ordered to hold it at all hazards, which was done, until ordered to fall back and 
form in line of battle. The regiment was then ordered to the left of the white house on 
the hill to support the Twentieth Wisconsin, which was hotly engaged. The Nineteenth, 
led by Lieutenant Colonel McFarland, advanced steadily up the hill and across the 
orchard back of the house, when the Twentieth Wisconsin gave way. The Nineteenth 
still advanced to the fence adjoining the woods, when the enemy, who lay concealed, 
arose to their feet, three regiments deep, and poured a destructive fire upon us from 
three sides, which caused the regiment to waver and fall back to the battery on the 
left of the road leading up the hill. Here Lieutenant Colonel McFarland fell, shot 
through the body. I then took command and rallied what was left of the regiment, 
which had met with severe loss in the charge. I then left the men I had rallied in 
charge of Captain Roderick, Company K, and went to rally some scattered troops. 
While I was absent Colonel Orme rode up and ordered Captain Roderick to fall in 
and rally with the Ninety-fourth Illinois, and this force, led by Colonel Orme in 
person, drove back the enemy with great slaughter and held their position until 
ordered to fall back and reform. In the retreat of the Twentieth Wisconsin the color 
bearer was shot and let fall the colors, when the enemy made a desperate efCort to 
get them, but a portion of the Nineteenth Iowa rallied and, getting possession of 
them, carried them ofC the field with their own. 

Oflicers and men behaved nobly and fought desperately as if the fate of the 
battle depended on them alone. I will mention especially Captain Roderick of Company 
K, whom I left in charge of some scattered troops; also Captain Richmond of Com- 
pany H, and Captain Taylor of Company G, also Lieutenant Brooks of Company D, 
who brought the colors off the field, and in doing so was badly wounded. Others are 
equally meritorious, but they are too numerous to mention at present. . . . 

Of the conduct of the three companies while on the skirmish line, Lieu- 
tenant Root made a supplementary report, which Major Kent embodied with 
his own, and which reads in part as follows: 

. . . I advanced them to the right of Company E, of the First Missouri Battery, 
when the right wing, under Captain John Bruce, was attacked by a superior force of 
the enemy, but a few well directed shots drove them back. I would here notice the 
bravery of Captain Bruce and the men under him. After advancing up near the 
woods, the enemy came out of cover, showing a heavy body of infantry and two bat- 
talions of cavalry, who met with a warm reception from the right, under Captain 
Bruce, which made them scatter. At this time I received an order from Colonel Orme 
to fall back to the cornfield, so as to let the battery shell the woods, which was done 
in good order and held until I was ordered to rejoin the regiment.* 

Major Kent reports the loss of the regiment in this battle as follows: 
Killed, commissioned oflicers 3, enlisted men 42; wounded, commissioned oflicers 
5, enlisted men 140; missing 2. Total loss, 192. The battle of Prairie Grove 
was one of the most hotly contested of the war. The official report of General 
Herron states that he took into the engagement 3,500 men and that his total 
loss was 953. He speaks in the highest terms of the bravery of the Nineteenth 
Iowa and its gallant commander, Lieutenant Colonel McFarland, who was 
killed while leading his regiment in a desperate charge.* The remarkable 
record of its exhausting marches in pursuit of the enemy, the fact that this was 
the first experience of the regiment in battle, and that it fought against greatly 
superior numbers, would alone have givdn it an honored place in history, had 
its service terminated with the battle of Prairie Grove. 

The regiment bivouacked for the night on the battlefield and moved for- 
ward at daylight, expecting to renew the attack, but it was discovered that

the enemy had retreated during the night, thus admitting defeat. The regi- 
ment then went Into camp on the battlefield and engaged in the duty of bury- 
ing the dead with the honors of war, and giving the wounded such care and at- 
tention as could be rendered in the field hospitals. The officers and men of 
the Nineteenth Iowa had thus had ample opportunity to become acquainted 
with the hardships and horrors of war, in but little more than three months 
from the date of their muster into the service. Death had saidly diminished 
their numbers at the very beginning of the long term for which they had en- 
listed, but had not affected their courage or determination to go forward In 
the faithful discharge of their duty as soldiers. 

Soon after the battle, the Army of the Frontier engaged in another arduous 
expedition, in which the Nineteenth Iowa participated, and which resulted in 
the capture of Van Buren, Arkansas, together with a number of prisoners, five 
steamboats and a large amount of commissary stores. Returning from this 
expedition, the regiment, again went into camp at Prairie Grove, where it 
remained until January 2, 1863, when it again took up the line of march, 
moving from point to point and watching the movements of the enemy. Feb- 
ruary 15, 1863, the regiment, with two companies of the First Iowa Cavalry, 
was stationed at Forsyth on the Arkansas river, which place they occupied 
during the remainder of the winter. The regiment left Forsyth April 22d, and 
after a series of marches reached Salem, Mo., where it was temporarily at- 
tached to the First Division under the command of General Ewing. June 3d, the 
regiment marched to Rolla, from which place it was conveyed by rail to St. 
Louis, where General Herron's division was being concentrated, and embarked 
on steamers for Vicksburg, Miss. The regiment was then conveyed down the 
river, arriving at Young's Point June 10, 1863, and from that place moved to 
the rear of Vicksburg, where the siege was in progress, and was assigned to a 
place in the line of investment on the right of General Herron's division, which 
occupied the extreme left of the line of General Grant's army. During the 
remainder of the siege the Nineteenth Iowa performed its full share of duty. 
In his official report Lieutenant Colonel Kent describes in detail the arduous 
character of the work performed — advancing under cover of the night, digging 
rifle pits, planting batteries and siege guns to bear upon the enemy's works, 
skirmishing with the enemy and driving him from his advanced lines to his 
heavy fortifications and, upon the 4th of July, 1863, when the glad news of the 
surrender w^ received, the marching of his regiment inside the formidable 
works, which, fortunately, were not carried by assault, involving as it would 
have done, a costly sacrifice of life. The report highly commends the conduct 
of the officers and men during the siege and makes special mention of the 
constant and untiring energy of Major Bruce in the performance of his duties. 

On the 12th of July, 1863, the regiment with its division participated in 
an expedition which resulted in the capture of Yazoo City on July 14th, the 
enemy evacuating the place on the approach of the Union troops, a number of 
prisoners being taken, together with the armament of the works, commissary 
stores and a large amount of cotton. The regiment engaged in several other 
expeditions within a radius of a hundred miles of Vicksburg, involving much 
hard marching, and the confiscating of horses, mules and cattle for the use 
of the army. On July 23, 1863, the regiment embarked on steamer at Vicks- 
burg and was conveyed to Port Hudson, La., arriving there on the 26th, and 
remaining until August 12th. A n,umber of men died from disease while at 
this camp, a^d there was a great deal of sickness. The next movement of the 
regiment was by steamer to Carrollton, La., where the entire Thirteenth Army 
Corps was encamped. 

On the morning of the 5th of September, the regiment with its division 
started up the river upon an expedition to the mouth of Red River, where the 



NINETEENTH INFANTRY 229 

enemy was seriously obstructing navigation, and had . captured a number of 
Federal transports. The regiment arrived at Morganza, twenty miles hekyw 
the mouth of Red River, Sieptember 7th, disembarked and went into camp. The 
enemy was in force 12 miles from Morganza. Detachments from General Her- 
ron's division were sent out in the direction of the enemy, and frequent skirmishes 
had occurred, when, on the 12th of September, the Nineteenth Iowa, Twenty- 
Sixth Indiana and two pieces of artillery, were ordered to the front. This de- 
. tachment moved put six miles, driving the enemy's pickets before it. It occu- 
pied this advanced position, skirmishing daily with the enemy, until September 
29th, when the battle of Sterling Farm was fought, in which the regiment 
suffered heavy loss . in killed, wounded and prisoners. Lieutenants Kent of 
company H, and Roberts of company K, were killed on the field. Captain Tay- 
lor, of company G, was mortally wounded. Major John Bruce wrote the official 
report of this engagement, which was so disastrous to that portion of the regi- 
ment which was engaged. As will be seen from the report which follows, there 
were but 260 of the Nineteenth Iowa engaged in the battle, that being the 
number present for duty at the time the regiment was sent to the front. 

Headquarters Nineteenth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, 

Brownsville, Texas, Oct. 15, 1863. 

General: I have the honor to submit to you a report of the part taken by my 
regiment in the engagement at Sterling Farm, fought on the 29th of September, 1863, 
in Point Coupee Parish, Louisiana. On the 5th day of September, the Second Division, 
Thirteenth Army Corps, commanded by Major General Herron, of which command the 
Nineteenth Iowa formed a part, embarked on board transports, and proceeded up the 
river to disperse a force under General Taylor, which was then on the west side belOW 
the mouth of Red River, seriously threatening the navigation of the Mississippi. 

On the 8th of September the division was halted near Morganza, La., lande.d 
and proceeded to the interior, met the enemy's pickets about two miles from the river, 
drove them in, and drove the rebels back ten miles across the Atchafalaya. I was left 
with my regiment and two pieces of artillery to protect the transports at the river. 
The division returned to the transports on the 11th. On the 12th, the Nineteenth Iowa, 
Twenty-sixth Indiana, and two pieces of artillery, the whole under command of Lieuten- 
ant Colonel Leake of the Twentieth Iowa, were ordered out to feel the enemy. We 
met the enemy's pickets one mile from the river, drove them in, and soon found the 
enemy in considerable force. We skirmished with them and drove them back across 
the Atchafalaya. We then fell back to Sterling Farm seven miles in the interior fi'orti 
where the transports lay; from this point our advance and pickets skirmished almost 
daily, with the advance of the enemy. On the 29 th, the enemy, having received rein- 
forcements, turned our right and attacked us in the rear, cutting off our retreat. He 
at the same time attacked us on the front. My regiment was first called into, aiitlbil, 
met the enemy boldly and at short range, delivered a deadly volley, which compelled 
him to fall back. They, however, rallied again in overwhelming force, and after a firm 
and desperate struggle in which 'we were well supported by the Twenty-sixth Indians^, 
'we were completely overpowered and compelled to surrender, many of our men, however, 
refusing to give up until their guns were taken from their hands by the rebels. Thb 
rebels were commanded by General Green in person and consisted of three brigades, in 
all a force of 5,000 men; our entire force there was about 500 men. My regimerft 
had only about 260 in the action; many having been left sick in convalescent camps at 
Carrollton, La., they were not on the expedition. The fight was short,* but deadly, 
considering the numbers engaged, the cane and high weeds concealing the lines until 
they approached within pistol shot. Many of our men escaped and came straggling into 
camp for two days afterwards. In the action we had killed two oflScers and eight 
enlisted men, wounded one officer (since died) and sixteen enlisted men, and elevon 
.oflacers and 203 enlisted men taken prisoners. The loss in the Twenty-sixth Indian^ 
Was not so much as ours. The enemy's loss was fifty killed in the field and many 
more wounded. Great credit is due to the officers and men of my regiment, who fought 
bravely and desperately against fearful odds. The rebel officers acknowledged it was to 
.them a dearly bought victory and were much chagrined at finding so small a capture after 



ROSTER IOWA VOLUNTEERS 



so vigorous a resistance. I was not in the engagement, having been ordered to New 
Orleans a few days prior. The regiment was at the time commanded by senior Captain 
Wm. Adams, Company B, who was taken prisoner. 

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

John Bruce, 
Major Comd'g Nineteenth Iowa Vol,, Infantry, 
To N. B. Baker, Adjutant General of lowa.^ 

The remainder of the regiment returned with the division to Carrollton, 
October 11th. Those who had escaped capture, together with those who had re- 
covered from sickness and were again able for duty, now exceeded the number 
of those who were held by the enemy as prisoners of war. 

On October 23d the regiment started upon an expedition, the objective 
point of which was Brownsville, Texas. The part taken by the Nineteenth Iowa 
in that important expedition is described in the official report of its conimanding 
officer as follows: 

Headquarters Nineteenth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, 

Brownsville, Texas, Dec. 1, 1863. 
General: I have the honor to submit to you an account of the part taken by 
my regiment in the expedition against Texas, which was under the command of Major 
General Banks, and started from New Orleans on the 24th of October, 1863. On th« 
23d my regiment embarked on the steamer General Banks. The entire fleet consisted 
of sixteen vessels and three gunboats, all loaded with troops, provisions and munitions 
of war. On the 27th, the fleet sailed through the southwest pass, and came to anchor 
outside the bar. Went to sea on the 29th. On the 30th, we encountered a severe 
storm from the north. Our ship being overloaded, as well as old and frail, labored 
and strained alarmingly. The sea, striking very heavily under the guards and fantail, 
threatened to tear off the latter, rendering it necessary, in order to save life, to lighten 
the ship. This was at once done by heaving overboard eleven mules, one. battery wagon, 
forage, etc., after which she rode easier, but her leakage constantly increased, requiring 
the unremitting working of the pumps. On the 31st of October our fuel was nearly 
exhausted, and we were taken in tow by the Empire City. On the 1st day of November, 
we came in sight of land, and at 6 p. m. came to anchor off the bar at the Island of 
Brazos Santiago. .On the 2d of November, we were the first of the fleet to cross the 
bar, and about noon effected a landing. The Nineteenth Regiment was the first com- 
mand landed and its colors the first that floated on the breeze of that desolate island. 
I was at once ordered out, moved six miles to the front, and held the advance for three 
days, until a large part of the force was landed and came up. On the 6th of November 
our orders were to move forward, and after two days march up the Rio Grande, crossing 
the battlefields of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma, we entered Brownsville, Texas, 
on the 7 th, without opposition. The enemy had a small force, which evacuated the 
place on our approach. Previously, however, they fired the barracks of Fort Brown, 
and many private buildings, which were smouldering ruins when we took possession 
of the town. We captured a large amount of cotton, , and stopped a large trade going 
on between Mexico and the so-called Confederate States. Colonel Wm. McE. Dye, 
of the Twentieth Iowa, commanding our brigade (Second Brigade, Second Division, 
Thirteenth Army Corps), was made commander of the post, and his brigade went into 
barracks in the town, where we still remain. 

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

John Bruce, 
Major Commanding Nineteenth Iowa Infantry. 
To N. B. Baker, Adjutant General of lowa,'^ 

On the 1st of January, 1864, the regiment was still quartered in barracks 
at Brownsville, Texas. At that date, according to the report of Major Bruce, it 
had the aggregate number of 691 still borne upon its rolls, present for duty

and absent, but among the absent were 213 of its officers and iben who stlU 
languished in rebel pi'isons; and adding to these the sick and disaliled in hos- 
pitals, and those uipon detached duty, there were less than 400 men then present 
with the regiment and able for duty. On the lOth'of March, 1864, 'Major' John' 
Bruce was promoted to Lieutenmit Colonel of the regiment. The regiment re^ 
mained in Brownsville during the winter. On the 30th of March it left the 
barracks and encamped on the plain east of the town and neiar Fort Brown. ^ la 
addition to the ordinary details for' guard and picket duty, heavy details were 
now made for the purpose of restoring the ruined and dismantled fort. About 
the time the repairs were completed, guns mounted, and the fort put in good 
condition for defense, orders were received to prepare for its abandonment. Of 
the withdrawal of the troops from the Mexican frontier. Major Bruce wrote atf 
follows: 

About the 5th pf July, we began to prepare for the evacuation of the place. 
This occupied considerable time. War material which had been collected . had to be 
removed, and many refugees from the State, fleeing from rebel conscription and intol- 
erance, had taken up their residence here. Even Mexican citizens, seeking asylum 
from the troubles of thefr own Government, sought the protection of the Stars and 
Stripes. These' persons had to have time for the removal of their families and effects, 
and had to be provided with transportation to New Orleans and oth6r places. The 
friends of 'the Mexican Government saw, with deep regret, the preparations for the 
evacuation of the line of the Rio Grande by the United States forces. During the occu- 
pation the most friendly relations were cultivated and maintained between our army 
and the Mexican army at Matamoras, then under command of General Cortinas, who 
adhered to the Mexican Government as represented by President Juarez. The occupa- 
tion of this line by the United States forces inspired confidence amon^ the friends of 
Mexican independence and gperated as a strong moral power in staying the advance of 
the French in Northern Mexico. ' A sentiment of true sympathy, amounting in many 
cases to regret, pervaded our entire army that our international relations would not 
permit us at that time to give substantial aid to our sister republic in her struggle 
against French domination. During the progress of evacuation we were frequently 
threatened by the' enemy. He attacked our pickets and made other demonstrations, 
but did not venture a general engagement for the possession of the place. On the 
28th of July the evacuation of the town and fort took place. The whole command, 
under General Herron, marched out and camped the first night at San Martino. After- 
wards the division halted at White's Ranch, and I was detaineia with my regiment at 
that place several days, covering the embarkation of the troops. On the 3d of August, 
I moved to the Island of Brazos Santiago, and the next day embarked on the steamer 
Corinthian with orders for New Orleans. Thus the line of the Rio Grande Was aban- 
doned, except that a garrison was left to hold the Island of Santiago. Arrived at 
New Orleans on the 7th day of August, and was ordered into camp at Carrollton. Here 
we were much gratified at meeting the officers and men of the regiment who had been 
captured at the battle of Sterling Farm, on the 29th of September previous, and who 
had, on the 2 2d of July, been exchanged and were awaiting our arrival to Join, the 
regiment. Ten oflacers. and one hundred and seventy enlisted men returned to us at 
this time. An account of their treatment by the enemy while prisoners, furnished me 
by S. F. Roderick, senior Captain of the regiment, who was one of their number. Is 
herewith submitted. . . .- 

The report of Captain Roderick describes in detail the hardships endured 
by himself and the other members of bis ;regiment, wbile confined in rebel 
prisons for a period of nearly ten months. They were moved from one place 
to another, and covered a distance of over 800 miles on foot, during tbe time 
they were in the hands of the enemy. The place where they were confined the 
longest was at Camp Tyler, Texas. This was a stockade, the walls of which 
were sixteen feet high; there was no shelter or protection of any kind from 



^Report of Adjutant General of Iowa for year 1866, pages 282, 284 and 285. 



232 ROSTER IOWA VOLUNTEERS 

t)ie weather, except some rude structures of logs and poles, built by the pris- 
oners, and the food furnished was barely sufficient to sustain life. When they 
were first placed within the stockade they were entirely without shelter, and, 
for forty-eight hours, without food. They then received ten days' rations of 
corn meal, but had nothing to put it in, and for over thirty days had no vessels 
in which to cook the meal furnished them, except what they could borrow from 
their guards. The weather was cold, only a few of the men had blankets, and 
all were poorly clad, many of them being without shoes. Of course sickness 
was the inevitable result of such exposure and lack of food, and medical treat- 
ment was entirely inadequate. Near the close of his account Captain Roderick 
says: "At this time the Scenes of human misery and suffering are beyond my 
power of description, and will only be known when some abler hand than mine 
shall write the history of the stockade at Tyler, Texas." The capacity for en- 
durance of such hardships among these men of the Nineteenth Iowa was most 
remarkable, for the account states that, out of the 206 men of the regiment in 
confinement, there were but two deaths, while one deserted, thirty made their 
escape and one hundred seventy-three were exchanged.** 

On the 14th of August, the regiment embarked at New Orleans, with 
orders to proceed to Pensacola, Florida, where it arrived on the 16th, and went 
into camp. From that place it took part in several expeditions, in one of which 
it lost one man killed in a skirmish with the enemy. December 6th the regi- 
ment again embarked and was conveyed to Fort Gaines, where it remained until 
the 14th, when it again embarked and, on the 15th, landed at East Pascagoula, 
Miss., and there joined the troops under command of General Granger, with 
Whom the regiment co-operated against the enemy. There were frequent skir- 
mishes, but no general engagement, and the regiment sustained no loss. On 
Dec. 26, 1864, the regiment occupied a fortified position five miles from East 
Pascagoula, where it remained until the close of the year. 

Early in January, 1865, the regiment returned to Pascagoula, where it 
remained until the close of the month and was then conveyed to Daiuphin 
Island, Ala. Here preparations were begun for the next campaign, the results 
of which were to prove so important to the cause of the Union. Upon the 
arrival of the Sixteenth Army Corps from Tennessee, active operations against 
the enemy began. The regiment was assigned to a brigade composed of the 
Twentieth Wisconsin, Ninety-fourth Illinois, Twenty-third and Nineteenth Iowa 
regiments of Infantry and Battery "C* First Missouri Light Artillery. This 
was the First Brigade of the Second Division of the Thirteenth Army Corps. 
On the 27th of February the 'troops and camp equipments were conveyed by 
transports to Navy Cove near Fort Morgan. On the 17th of March the troops 
moved forward, the Thirteenth Corps taking the advance. The roads and the 
weather were bad. The men were frequently called upon to assist in getting 
the artillery over the almost impassable roads. It was hard and toilsome work, 
but the endurance of the soldiers was equal to the task. On the ,22d of March, 
the advance had reached Fish river when the enemy's cavalry was encountered, 
but was able to offer only feeble resistance and the column moved on, arriving 
in front of Spanish Fort on the 26th. On the next day the rest of the army 
arrived, and by night the fort was completely invested, the First Brigade hold- 
ing the extreme left of the line. Oh the 27th a general advance was ordered. 
The Nineteenth Iowa led the advance of its brigade. The enemy made a stub- 
born resistance, but finally fell back to the fort and its immediate defenses. 
Then commenced a series of regular siege operations, in which the Nineteenth 
Iowa performed its full share of duty under the command of Lieutenant Colonel

Second Division, Thirteenth Army Corps. 
Sir: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by my 
regiment in the attack upon and reduction of Spanish Fort and its defenses. On the 
27th of March, about noon, I was ordered forward; crossed the creek, deployed in line 
of battle, advanced Companies A and D in skirmish line through the thick brush, hold- 
ing my line well out on my left to the bay. After ascending the hill, and in view of 
the fort, the enemy opened on my line with artillery, wounding a number of my men. 
Here we hastily threw up a line of works, and in the meantime Faust's Battery came 
up, opened on the enemy vigorously, and in a short time he ceased to return the fire. 
I again advanced, under orders, to get a position as near as possible to the enemy's 
works. The enemy, observing the movement, opened upon me with musketry, from his 
rifle pits, and from the front. He also opened with his artillery. In the advance I had 
a number of men killed and wounded. Under cover of the fallen timber, I protected 
my line as well as I could, while the artillery in my rear was playing with good effect 
on the rebel works. Darkness came on and I was ordered to throw up a line ot 
defenses where I then was, which I did. After this the operations assumed the nature 
of a siege. We advanced our lines under cover of the night, by parallels, drove the 
enemy out of his pits, and occupied them. On the night of the 8th of April, the enemy 
abandoned his works, and we took possession of them. Annexed to this report, find list 
of the killed and wounded of my regiment. My casualties were but few after the 
advance of the first day. 

"Very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

John Bruce, 
Lieut. Col. Nineteenth Iowa Inft., Commanding Regt.^^ 

With the fall of Spanish Fort ended the hattle history of the Nineteenth 
Iowa. On the 9th of April, Fort Blakely was captured by the troops under 
General Steele, and on the night of the 10th, Mobile and all its defenses were 
evacuated by the enemy. During the following month the regiment was em- 
ployed, with other troops, in dismantling the forts around Mobile. It then 
moved to Dauphin Island, and remained there until June 14th, when it was 
ordered to return to Mobile and, soon after its arrival there, the officers and 
men were rejoiced by receiving the glad *Dews that they would soon be per- 
mitted to return to their homes. On the 10th day of July, 1865, the regiment 
was mustered out of the service of the United States at Mobile, Alabama; on 
the 17th it embarked on . steamer for New Orleans, and was conveyed from 
there to Cairo, 111., by steamboat, thence by rail to Davenport, Iowa, where it 
was disbanded Aug. 1, 1865, and the officers and men bade each other good-bye 
and returned to their homes. The day before the regiment disbanded, its com- 
mander issued the following address:

On the eve of separation, it is perhaps no more than proper that I should address 
to you a few parting words. We have been together for three long, eventful years- 
years of surpassing Interest in the history of our country, and of the world. Inspired 
by a common patriotic impulse, we joined hands on the altar of our country, and 
common sufferings, sacrifices and dangers have united us in the affectionate memory 
of the heart. You have borne yourselves well in the great struggle. No commanding 
officer has ever spoken of you otherwise than in commendation of your gallant services.

You have endured with patiejice and fortitude the hardships and dangers to which you 
have beeii exposed ; you have clieerfuliy performed every duty required of you, whether 
on the field of battle or in the pauses of the conflict. You return from the victorious 
fields of the republic, conscious of having done your part in bearing aloft the banner of 
your country's nationality, and planting it on every hill and valley throughout the land. 
You will receive the congratulations of your friends, and a grateful country will not 
forget your services. Go, then, my comrades, put off the panoply of war, and enter 
the pursuits of peaceful industry ; prove yourselves good citizens, as you have good 
soldiers. Forget not the principles for which you have victoriously contended, and for 
preserved life, health, and good government, forget not the debt of gratitude due to 
•Almighty God. With the most profound sentiments of respect for the memories of our 
honored dead, and the liveliest feelings of kindly regard for all who have survived, I 
bid you, comrades all, farewelL I part from your command without the consciousness 
of one unkind feeling toward anyone of you. God bless you and grant you long life 
and health. May home soon gladden your eyes and cheer your hearts, and may demostic 
happiness meet you smiling at your gates.

Lieut. Col. Nineteenth Iowa Volunteers.^ 

Well and faithfully have the survivors of this splendid regiment observed 
the parting injunctiqn of their gallant commander. In their various avocations 
4n life they have remained true to the principles for which they fought. Many 
of them have answered the last roll call since the close of the great struggle for 
the preservation of their government, and comparatively few remain to peruse 
this brief sketch of the service performed by the regiment to which they be- 
longed; but the children of the living and the dead, and their posterity to the 
latest generation, will refer with just pride to the record of personal service 
of their ancestors, as shown in the brief paragraphs in connection with their 
names in the roster which follows this history. The commonwealth of Iowa 
has , performed a high duty in thus preserving, not only the history of this 
splendid regiment, but the names of the men who marched and fought under 
Its colors, and brought them back to their state to be placed among the clusters 
of honored flags which adorn the rotunda of Its Capitol. With the lapse of 
time the Republic for which these brave men fought and suffered will grow 
stronger and more enduring, and with its growth and strength will increase the 
love and reverence for the memory of those who, in the time of their country's 
greatest need, rallied to her defense and saved her from destruction at the hands 
of a portion of her own rebellious children.

Twentieth Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Infantry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 

TWENTIETH REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER 
INFANTRY 



The ten companies which were assigned to the Twentieth Regiment were 
ordered into quarters by the Governor on dates ranging from July, 15 to August 
15, 1862. The designated rendezvous was Camp Kirkwood, near Clinton, Iowa, 
and there the companies were mustered into the service of the United States 
on the 22d, 25th and 27th days of August, 1862, by Captain H. B. Hendershott, 
of the United States Army. The aggregate strength of the regiment at muster 
in was 904, rank and file.^ Like most of the regiments which had preceded it, 
the Twentieth had but a brief opportunity for instruction before leaving the 
State. It was armed with Enfield rifles, (at that time considered one of the 
most effective weapons,) was furnished with the usual equipment for active 
service, and, on the 5th of September, was conveyed down the river by steam- 
boat to St. Louis, and upon its arrival there went into quarters at Benton 
Barracks, where it remained but a short time, and proceeded thence to RoUa, 
Mo., arriving there September 14th, and, two days later, started upon the 
march for Springfield, Mo., where it arrived September 24th, having covered 
a distance of 122 miles. In this, their first experience in marching, the men 
. suffered much hardship, because of the fact that they had not yet become 
inured to the exposure and fatigue of an active campaign. It was their first 
lesson in the hard school of the soldier in time of war. Fortunately for the 
regiment. Colonel Dye had been a Captain in the Regular Army and was a 
thoroughly trained soldier, and a few others among the officers and men had 
seen service as volunteers in other Iowa organizations. Having a leader 
with a military education and with the help of those who had had some actual 
experience in warfare, the officers and men made rapid progress in learning 
their duties as soldiers. 

Upon its arrival at Springfield, the regiment was assigned to a brigade 
consisting of the Twentieth Iowa, First Iowa Cavalry, Thirty-seventh Illinois 
Infantry, and one section of the First Missouri Light Artillery. This was the 
Second Brigade of the Second Division of the Army of the Southwest, com- 
manded by General J. M. S'chofield. The division was commanded by General 
Totten, and the brigade by Colonel Dye, of the Twentieth Iowa, leaving Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Leake in command of the regiment. The Twentieth Iowa was 
now about to enter upon a campaign which was to put to the severest test the 
bravery, fortitude and discipline of its officers and men. The hardships to 
which they had thus far been subjected were slight in comparison with those 
they encountered while marching and counter-marching in pursuit of their 
elusive enemy. From the 30th of September to th5 7th of December, on which 
latter date the battle of Prairie Grove was fought, the regiment passed through

Roster of the Regiment.

an experience, the details of which are described with great particularity in 
the history of the regiment written by Colonel Dye, and in the prefix to the 
official report of Lieutenant Colonel Leake, describing the conduct of his regi- 
ment in the battle of Prairie Grove.* The following extracts taken from 
Lieutenant Colonel Leake's report will serve to show some of the great hard- 
ships endured by the regiment during this period of its service: 

... On the 15th day of October, at Cassville, Mo., the army was reorganized and 
called the *'Army of the Frontier," the First Division under command of General Blunt, 
the Second Division under command of General Totten, and the Third Division under the 
command of General Herron. . . . The Fir^t Iowa Cavalry was taken from Colonel 
Dye's Brigade and transferred to the Third Division, and in its place a battalion of 
the Sixth Missouri Cavalry, under commg-nd of Major Montgomery, was assigned to the 
Second Brigade, Second Division. General Schofield still commanded the whole. Thus 
organized as an army, on the 28fh of October, we had penetrated as far south as 
FayetteviUe, Washington County, Arkansas, having driven the enemy before us. Beyond 
and south of that place, on the 30th of the same month. General Schofield retired from 
FayetteviUe, and placed the army in position on the line of the road leading from 
Huntsville to Bentonsvllle, the First Division on Prairie Creek, six or seven miles 
west of Bentonsvllle, the Second ^Division at Osage Springs, and the Third at Cross 
Hollows, to await the future movements of the enemy. The army remained In this 
position until the 2d of November, when. In pursuance of orders from Major General 
Curtis commanding the Department, the Second and Third Divisions commenced their 
return march to Missouri. The First Division under General Blunt retained its position 
west of Bentonsvllle. ... A few days afterwards Intelligence was received that the 
post at Clark Mills, on the road from Springfield to Forsyth, garrisoned by five com- 
panies, three of State Militia, and two of the Tenth Illinois Cavalry, had been sur- 
rendered, and that the enemy were marching in large force on Springfield, to protect 
which the Second Division was moved on the 10th to Ozark, making the march of 
thirty-five miles in twelve hours. . . . The Second Division moved on the 17th, 
the night of the 17th, and the 18th, through a drenching storm westerly thirty-six miles 
to Camp Lyon. . . . Up to this time the regiment had marched since leaving 
Rolla the distance of 520 miles. We rested at Camp Lyon from all our fatigues and 
exposure until the morning of December 4th. During the stay at Camp Lyon, the 
men were provided with everything needed for comfort except shoes and stockings. Only 
one hundred pairs of shoes, one hundred and eighty pairs of infantry boots, and one 
hundred and eight pairs of socks could be obtained. These were distributed through 
the regiment to those who were most In need of them. No shoes had been provided since 
the first pair obtained before leaving Iowa, and they were almost entirely worn out 
by the continuous marching over hundreds of weary miles of stony road, and through 
numerous creeks and rivers. 

On the evening of December 3d, a courier arrived at Camp Lyon with a 
message from General Blunt, asking for reinforcements, his division being 
threatened with attack by a greatly superior force of the enemy. General Blunt 
was a skillful ctficer and, as his troops consisted mostly of cavalry and mounted 
infantry, he had been able to elude the enemy and avoid a general engagement, 
but the rebel forces had cut off his retreat and he was in a very critical position. 
The Second Division promptly responded to his call for asaistance and made 
a most wonderful record of forced marches, which are thus described by Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Leake, in continuation of his report from which the previous 
extracts were made: 

On the morning of the 4 4th of December, reveille was beaten at one o'clock, 
and at four o'clock the regiment conmienced Its march. Between four and five 
o'clock P. M. It encamped on Flat Cre^, having marched 25 miles. The next day 
we moved at 5 o'clock A. M., passed through Cassville and Keltsvllle, and encamped 
one and a half miles beyond the latter place, having marched twenty-one and a

half miles. On the morning of the 6th, we left camp at 5 o'clock, passed through Pea 
Ridge and Sugar Creek, and reached Cross Hollows, Ark., at about 5 o'clock P. M., 
twenty-six and a half miles. Here we halted for rest and supper. At eleven o'clock 
P. M. we moved on, marching all night, passed through Fayetteville after daylight, 
and halted one mile beyond, on the road to Cane Hill, for rest and breakfast. After 
the lapse of about an hour and a half, having learned of the capture of a portion 
of the train of the First Arkansas Cavalry, a few miles beyond, I was ordered to 
detail a company under the command of a reliable officer, to protect our train 
(in addition to the regular division^ and brigade guards, already large,) to which duty I 
assigned company B, under command of Captain Coulter; so that company B was 
deprived of the privilege of being in the engagement. We then marched on rapidly, . 
until we arrived at the battlefield between eleven and twelve o'clock on the morning 
of the 7 th, a distance of nine miles. The regiment thus marched the distance of 
one hundred miles in eighty consecutive hours, the last fifty-three and one-half of 
which we accomplished in thirty-one hours. Very many of the command marched 
with shoes so much worn that their feet were upon the ground, and were badly 
bruised and cut up by the stony road. Many of the boots furnished at Camp Lyon 
fitted the feet of the men so illy that they became inflamed and blistered by the 
continuous marching, and a few carried their boots in their hands and marched to 
the field in their bare feet, whilst many fell out by the way, unable to march farther. 
Under these circumstances, we went into the engagement with only two hundred and 
seventy enlisted men, and twenty-three commissioned officers. 

Prom the foregoing description of the energetic manner in which the 
Twentieth Iowa, with its brigade and division, pressed forward by day and 
night marches to the relief of General Blunt's command, it will be seen that 
they were the first troops to engage the enemy* Continuing his report, Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Leake describes minutely the positions of the opposing forces 
at the commencement of the battle. The enemy was posted upon a heavily 
wooded hill, the approach to which was across a prairie about 1000 yards wide. 
General Blunt states in his official report that he had been skirmishing with 
the advance of the enemy, holding them in check until his reinforcements 
should arrive, but the enemy got between him and the troops coming to his 
assistance, and the battle had been raging for several hours before his division 
came up and attacked the enemy in the rear. He, therefore, furnished the re- 
inforcement, instead of receiving it. The compiler again quotes from the 
report of Lieutenant Colonel Leake, as follows: 

. . . These dispositions having been made at one o'clock P. M. the engage- 
ment was opened by the firing- of a gun from the battery under the command of 
Lieutenant Marr. At about two o'clock the order was given to advance the battery, 
and I received orders to advance the regiment forward in support. We advanced in 
this order across the open field, to within about two hundred yards of the foot of 
the hill, and in front of the house of H. Roger, when the battery was ordered back, 
and the regiment left in that position. I presently received orders from Colonel Dye, 
in pursuance of which the regiment moved to the right into the adjoining field and 
in front of the orchard on the left of the house of Wm. Rogers, to check a movement 
of the enemy to outflank us on the right. At this time the Twentieth was on the 
extreme right of the Second and Third Divisions. This movement was executed 
under a galling fire which we returned, advancing to within a few paces of the 
edge of the orchard. At this time a force appeared on our right advancing up the 
valley. Fearing that we were being outflanked by the enemfy, I was ordered to 
fall bacH across the field and take position behind a fence in our rear, which was 
executed in good order under fire. I then threw out companies A and F, under 
command of Captains Bates and Hubbard, from the right wing as skirmishers. Shortly 
after, a cavalry force appeared upon our right and rear, whereupon the skim^ishers 
were recalled and a change of front made toward the approaching force, to the rear 
behind a fence running at right angles to the one from which we moved. Colonel 
Dye having sent forward and ascertained that the cavalry were from General Blunt's 
command, .the Twentieth at once changed front and resumed its former position 
behind the fence fronting towards the orchard. We had scarcely taken this position 



344 HISTOI^ICAL SKETCH 



when an aide from General Blunt reported to me that the forces which had come 
up the valley, and were taking position in the field on our right, was the command 
of General Blunt. I at once directed him to Colonel Dye, who was about 200 yards 
to the rear and left of me, who immediately sent word to General Herron of the 
arrival of reinforcements under General Blunt. This took place at about three 
and a half o'clock, as nearly as I can fix the time. Before this time the Nineteenth 
Iowa and Twentieth Wisconsin had charged up the hill on the extreme left, and had 
been driven back ; after which the Twenty-sixth Indiana and Thirty-seventh Illinois 
had been ordered up in nearly the same place, and with a like result, so that when 
General Blunt arrived no infantry was engaged on our left. General Blunt at once 
sent forward a part of the First Indiana regiment as skirmishers. Colonel Dye 
reported to General Blunt and ordered me to make a. charge with the Twentieth up 
the hill and on the left of, and operating with the forces of General Blunt. I moved 
the regiment rapidly forward in line of battle across the field, obliquing to the left; 
crossed the orchard fence, drove the enemy through the orchard, and advanced beyond 
the upper orchard fence and through the woods a short distance. . . . Fearing 
that the troops on our left wing had ascended the hill and advanced to our front, 
I saw directly in front of us a mass of troops moving down upon us. At almost 
the same instant they fired a volley under which the left wing recoiled nearly to the 
orchard fence, where they promptly rallied at my command and renewed the firing 
with great rapidity and, I think, effect. I received orders to retire behind the fence 
at the foot of the hill, and hold if, which movement was promptly executed by the 
regiment in good order, climbing the fence under a galling fire, lying down behind 
it, and continuing the firing between the fence rails. The moment we crossed the 
lence the orchard was shelled by the batteries of General Blunt's forces on the 
right in the field, and by that under command of Captain Murphy in position at the 
point from which we entered the action, from the combined effects of which, and 
our own firing, the enemy were driven back. ... As soon as- the enemy was 
driven from the orchard I was ordered to retire in good order from the fence and 
form in the middle of the field. As we commenced to retire, Major Thompson having 
been wounded and the left wing, not receiving the order to halt, promptly retired 
nearly to the fence from which we had advanced, I rode down, and at the command 
they returned and formed at the place designated. . . . This ended our active par- 
ticipation in the contest. About the time we had retaken our old position, the rest 
of General Blunt's Division had become heavily engaged with the enemy on our 

extreme right and remained so engaged until darkness closed the contest 

The next morning before daylight, I formed the line of battle, and* awaited the 
renewal of the action. 

Soon after daylight it was discovered that the enemy had fled during the 
night, thus acknowledging defeat. The Union- troops were so worn and ex- 
hausted from forced marches and the hard fighting of the previous day that 
they were in no condition to pursue the enemy. Lieutenant Colonel Leake in 
closing his report speaks in the highest terms of praise of the conduct of the 
Twentieth Iowa during the battle. He makes special mention of Major Thomp- 
son, who was wounded late in the action and, though suffering great pain, 
did not leave the field until the regiment retired. He also mentions the gal- 
lant conduct of Acting Adjutant, Lieutenant J. C. McClelland and Sergeant 
Major George A. Gray. Of the gallant Brigade Commander he says, "It will 
not, I trust, be improper for me to remark of my superior' officer. Colonel 
William McE. Dye, commanding the Second Brigade, that by the entire self 
possession, the calm bravery, and the military ability he displayed on the field, 
he won the entire confidence of the regiment. Its affection he had gained 
before." 

The loss of the regiment in the battle of Prairie Grove was 1 officer and 7 
enlisted men killed; 5 officers and 34 enlisted men wounded. The Brigade 
Commander — Colonel Dye — warmly commended Lieutenant Colonel Leake for 
the excellent manner in which he handled his regiment during the battle, and 
also made special mention of Acjjutant Lake of the Twentieth Iowa, who acted 
as Assistant Adjutant General upon his staff, and carried his ortiers to different 



TWENTIETH INFANTRY 345 

points on the field under the fire of the enemy. While the subsequent record 
of the regiment is altogether an honorable one and deserves full description, the 
limitations prescribed for this historical sketch will not permit of the occupancy 
of much greater space in describing its future movements than has been de- 
voted to its operations up to and including the battle just described. The com- 
piler believes, however, that the events embraced in this period of the history 
of the regiment constitute a record not excelled for bravery and fortitude, and 
that it would have entitled the officers and men of the Twentieth Iowa to the 
lasting gratitude of the State. and Nation had the record ended with Prairie 
Grove. The day after the battle the dead were buried with military honors. 
The wounded had received such care and attention as could be given in field 
hospitals, . and they were subsequently removed to Fayetteville, where better 
facilities for their care were provided. The regiment remained in camp at 
Prairie Grove, enjoying a much needed rest, until the morning of December 27, 
1862, when it again took up the line of march for Van Buren on the Arkansas 
river. The march was over the Boston Mountains, the cavalry leading the 
advance and skirmishing with the enemy, but, upon the approach of the Union 
troops, the enemy retreated across the Arkansas, and the town of Van Buren, 
a large quantity of supplies and several steamboats were captured. The 
boats and such portion of the supplies as could not be removed were de- 
stroyed, and the troops returned to their camp at Prairie Grove. 

On Jan. 2, 1863, the regiment again took up the line of march, with its 
brigade and division. General Schofield had again assumed command of the 
Army of the Frontier. In the campaign which ensued, and which extended 
through the winter auji into the spring, there was much hard marching, and 
the troops were exposed to alternate storms of snow and rain, marching over 
muddy and sometimes almost impassable roads, but everywhere the movements 
of the army as a whole, and in detachments, were directed against the rebel 
forces with the one purpose in view — that of driving the invaders from the 
State and placing the loyal citizens of Missouri in position to defend them 
selves from further invasion, and enabling the troops composing the Army of 
the Frontier to be withdrawn for the purpose of co-operating in the great 
expedition against Vicksburg. General Schofield's plans were successfully 
carried out, the rebel troops in his front being mostly withdrawn during the 
winter for the purpose of reinforcing their army in Mississippi, then preparing 
to resist the advance of the Union army under General Grant. * 

Towards the latter part of March, the regiment with its brigade and 
division w^s being gradually withdrawn from the Missouri frontier and moved 
towards the point where these troops had entered upon their first campaign. 
At length, on the 23d of April, 1863, the division marched into RoUa. The 
Twentieth Iowa had now been in active service about seven months. It had 
been engaged in many skirmishes and one hard fought battle. Its losses in 
killed and wounded, and from disease, had been heavy. April 24th the regiment 
was transported by rail to St. Louis. The following extracts from Colonel 
Dye's history of the regiment (heretofore alluded to in this sketch) describe 
its principal movements for a considerable portion of its subsequent service, 
beginning with its arrival in St. Louis: 

Here we remained guarding the arsenal, and doing other important duties until 
May 15 th. During a part of this time, First Lieutenant C. L. Drake, with company 
A, and a part of company F, embarked for Cape Girardeau, Mo., wher& he arrived 
in time to participate in the successful defense of that place against the assaults 
of the enemy. Companies D and G, Captains Torrey and • Altmann, were also de- 
tached to quell mutinies at Boiton Barracks. On the 1st of May the regiment 
arrived by rail at Pilot Knob, and remained there until June 3d. On the 5th, by 
hot marching,^ arrived at St. Genevieve, and embarked with what remained of the 
regiment. ... A part of the Infantry and Artillery of the Second and? Third 



346 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



Divisions, having now been organized into a division (detached from the Army of 
the Frontier) of two brigades, the Twentietli Iowa being a part of the First Brigade, 
proceeded on the 6 th to reinforce the investing army at Vicksburg. "We arrived at 
Chickasaw Bluff, on the Yazoo river, on the 11th. Returned and landed at Young's 
Point, crossed the peninsula to a point below Vicksburg, and took position on the 
14 th, on the extreme left of the investing forces, the First Brigade on the left, and 
the Twentieth Iowa, the second regiment from the right, where they remained until 
July 4th — the day of the surrender — ^participating in all the exposures and fatigues 
of that successful siege, being on duty in detachments almost continuously, either 
in the trenches or rifle pits ; the troops not thus on duty standing to arms every 
day and night. Men were on duty as long as five successive days and nights, with- 
out other sleep than was stolen or involui^tarily obtained under the guns of the 
enemy, while another relief was on duty. The regiment was very fortunate in 
losing during the siege by wounds only six enlisted men, three of whom died from 
their wounds. 

At 9 a. m. on the 4th, part of the division, the Twentieth Iowa leading, 
marched into the works of Vicksburg, planting the first Union flag which floated over 
the extreme fort on the right of the enemy's works. As bad as the water used by our 
men was, the sickness was not so severe before the surrender, as when, by a 
relaxation • of the system from the stimulant of excitement, intermittent and con- 
gestive fevers at once prostrated about one-third of the regiment. We remained 
in the works, collecting the surrendered material, until the 11th, when the division 
embarked with orders to reinforce the investing force of Port Hudson. When 
aboard, and about leaving, intelligence arrived of its surrender. The destination 
of the division was then changed to Yazoo City, where it arrived on the 13th, and 
by co-operation with the grunboats, (the De Kalb of which was destroyed by tor- 
pedoes,) captured the place, with a half do^sen pieces of artillery, and a number 
of prisoners, after an ineffectual resistance of half an hour. On the 16th, we left 
to open communication with General Sherman, at Canton, Miss. This accomplished, 
we arrived on the 19 th, on our return, at Yazoo City, and re-embarked. ... By 
the 2 2d, we were again in camp within the works of Vicksburg, the regiment having 
lost by sickness about 280 men. Leaving the serious cases of sickness at Vicksburg, 
we embarked on the 24 th of July, and arrived at Port Hudson on the 26th. During 
the siege of Vicksburg, the division had been attached to the Thirteenth Army Corps; 
It now became, and yet is, the Second Division of this corps. The troops remained 
on the boats until the 31st, when they were put into camp just in rear of Port 
Hudson. . . . We remained here until the 16th of August. During our stay, 
although about two-thirds of the men continued ofl the report for duty, probably 
three-fourths of the regiment were under medical treatment. On the 17th, arrived 
at Carrollton, La., losing, during our stay here, many of the men, from the pro- 
tracted diseases of the summer. The regiment embarked here, without tents or 
knapsacks, and bivouacked, Sept. 7th, near Morgranza, below the mouth of Red river. 
On the 8th, we marched to the Atchafalaya, driving the enemy to the opposite bank, 
a part of the division having a skirmish. We were absent but two days on this 
duty, yet the men suffered greatly from the heat (many beilng sun struck) and 
the want of good water. We remained at or near Morganza, almost constantly 
bivouacked, until October 10th. The knapsacks of the regiment did not arrive 
until about September 28th. Lieuten9.nt Colonel Leake and two men (the former 
slightly wounded) were unfortunately captured, at Sterling Farm, Sept. 29th, While 
on duty, detached from the regiment.' While at Morganza the men suffered alternately 
with heat and cold rains, being without shelter or change of clothing. On the 11th 
of October, encamped at Carrollton, La., where the regiment remained until October 
23d, health much improved. . . . October 24th the division steamed out with 
sealed orders, and was overhauled by a severe gale, which was weathered by most 
of the vessels of the fleet November 1st, arrived In sight of Brazos de Santiago, 
(coast of Texas) and landed on the 4th, after making, with the Twentieth ^Wisconsin, 
an unsuccessful effort to land through the surf, at the mouth of the Rio Grande, in 
which seven out of ten surf boats, loaded with men, were either swamped or upset, 
losing, miraculously, however, only four men by drowning. A portion of the division. 



•Lieutenant Colonel Leake was in command of the Nineteenth Iowa and Twenty- 
sixth Indiana at the time he was wounded and captured. 



TWENTIETH INFANTRY 347 

including company G, (prqvost guard of the division) proceeded to Brownsville, and 
a detachment of the regiment, under Lieutenant Carver, remained at the mouth of 
the river, whilst the regiment (with these exceptions) on the 6th crossed the Lagoon 
del Madre, to Point Isabel, where it remained, suffering from great scarcity of water, 
and want of cooking utensils and baggage, until the 13th. November 15 th, the regi- 
ment re-embarked and landed, with a portion of the division, on the south end of 
Mustang Island, in the evening: At 9 a. m. on the 17th, it arrived at the north end 
of the island, (about 25 miles distant,) after a very fatigruing march, the men 
drawing by hand two pieces of artillery, carrying their knapsacks and sixty rounds 
of animunition, this after about two weeks' confinement aboard ship. About one 
hundred of the enemy, with three pieces of heavy artillery, were at this end of the 
island, guarding the Aransas inlet. The isnemy surrendered as soon as our forces 
appeared. 

The regiment remained on Mustang Island about seven months. Out of 
wrecked lumber, procured on and near the island, they erected barracks. The 
monotony of garrison duty was varied somewhat by expeditions of detachments 
from the regiment to the main land. Some prisoners and a couple of schooners 
were captured, but no organized body of the enemy was encountered on these 
expeditions. It was the most restful period in the history of the regiment. On 
June 24, 1864, the regiment embarked at Mustang Island and was conveyed to 
Brazos Santiago, and from there it marched to Brownsville, Texas, where it 
remained, doing garrison duty until July 29th, when.it started on its return 
to Brazos Santiago, and from there returned by sea to New Orleans, arriving 
there and going into its old camp at Carrollton, August 6th. Here it remained 
but a short time when it was conveyed by steamer to Fort Gaines, Ala., which, 
however, had surrendered before the arrival of the regiment. It disembarked 
at Mobile Point, and participated in the siege of Fort Morgan, which surrendered 
August 23, 1S64. During ail these movements Colonel Dye was detached from 
the regiment and in command of a brigade. Lieutenant Colonel Leake was still 
a prisoner of war. Major Thompson had resigned, and the regiment had altern- 
ately been under the command of Captains M. L. Thompson and Edward 
Coulter. 

On September 7th the regiment proceeded by steamer to New Orleans and 
thence up the river to Morganza, La. During the voyage an accident oc- 
curred to the machinery of the vessel, and five men of the Twentieth Iowa were 
badly scalded by escaping steam; three of them jumped overboard and were 
drowned. At Morganza Lieutenant Colonel Leake rejoined the regiment, hav- 
ing regained his liberty by an exchange of prisoners. He received a glad 
welcome from the oflacers and men, who had become greatly attached to him 
and had complete confidence in his courage and ability. With full apprecia- 
tion of this feeling towards him, he again assumed the command of the regi- 
ment 

On the 12th of October orders were received to embark the command and 
move up the Mississippi to the mouth of White River, thence to Devall's Bluff, 
and disembark. There, and at Brownsville, the regiment was encamped until 
January, 1865. During this period of its service the Twentieth Iowa was part 
of the time engaged in acouting in the surrounding country, but was most of 
the time performing garrison duty and erecting fortifications. Many of its 
men were on the sick list, the prevailing disease being scurvy. A quantity of 
sanitary stores were sent to the regiment from Iowa, and were used with ex- 
cellent effect, and when the regiment left Arkansas, on the 8th of January, 
the health of the men had greatly improved. Its next place of encampment 
was near Kennerville, La., where it remained until February 16th, on which 
date it embarked for Pensacola Bay, Florida, and, after a voyage without in- 
cident, went into camp at Florida Point, remaining there until the commence- 
ment of the Mobile campaign, in which it was an active participant. On the 



348 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



march to Mobile, which was very toilsome, the regiment attracted the atten- 
tion df the Division Commander to such a marked extent as to cause him to 
make special mention of its conduct in a general order thanking all the troops 
under his command. The order is here quoted as follows: 

General Orders No. 8. 

Headquarters Second Division Thirteenth Army Corps. 
In the Field Mar. 28, 1865. 
I. The General commanding appreciates the ready and generous efforts of the 
troops In promoting this difficult march. These labors assure future success, and 
every patriot will feel grateful to the soldiers who have endured them. The General 
particularly thanks Lieutenant Colonel J. B. Leake, commanding the Twentieth Iowa 
Volunteers, for the valuable and rapid service of his regiment this morning, showing, 
by the amoimt done, how much can be accomplished by officers giving their personal 
Interest and attention to their duty. 

By order of Brigadier General C. C. Andrews, 

George Monroe^ 
Assistant Adjutant General. . 

The regiment participated in the siege of Fort Blakely, performing all 
the duties assigned to it, but fortunately sustained only the single casualty of 
one man wounded. On April 14th, the regiment was conveyed across the bay 
to the city of Mobile, where it was engaged in the performance of provost guard ♦ 
duty until July 8, 1865, on which date it was mustered out of the service of 
the United States. The regiment was then conveyed to Clinton, Iowa, where it 
was disbanded July 27, 1865. 

The record of the Twentieth Iowa is an honorable one. While the regi- 
ment was engaged in but one hard fought battle in the open field, it was no 
fault of its gallant officers and men that it did not participate in more of the 
great battles of the war. They went where they were ordered to go, and per- 
formed every duty require^ of them. They endured as much suffering- upon 
the march, in bivouac, in camp and siege, as any regiment which the State 
of Iowa sent into the field. They are therefore entitled to the gratitude of 
every patriotic citizen of the State and Nation for the service they have ren- 
dered to both. Their names and the record of their service, contained in these 
pages, will be handed down to their posterity; and those who can trace their 
lineage to the brave and faithful men of the Twentieth Iowa may justly claim 
Efll proud a heritage as was ever bestowed upon the descendants of those who 
fought and suffered and died in a righteous cause.
